PHUKET: Six candidates have announced plans to stand in a by-election on September 23 to fill a vacant seat in Phuket’s Provincial Administration Organization (OrBorJor). The six hopefuls are Chockchai Kitsaloran of the OrBorJor Kao Mai Party – which currently holds the majority in the council – and five independents: Teerasak Wichutanont, Wisut Tangwittayaporn, Samran Jindapon, Chonramat Thanundornwat and Wittaya Kaewliporn. The by-election was called after dentist Yada Palimapan resigned from the council recently to run as a parliamentary candidate for the Thai Rak Thai Party in national elections to be held around the end of this year.
