Gen Prem casts early vote
Privy Council President Prem Tinsulanonda cast his vote in early voting on a school campus in Dusit area, Bangkok, this morning.
Gen Prem, 99, emerged from a van in a wheelchair in front of the polling booth at Sukhothai School watched by an army of cameramen. It was his first public appearance in several months amid reports that he had been seriously ill.
Wearing a yellow shirt and a grey jacket, Gen Prem smiled as he dropped his ballot into the ballot box. He was among some 900,000 early voters in Bangkok to cast their election ballots today. About two million people have registered as early voters.
