Thai snap poll may have to be delayed - commission
BANGKOK, Mar 15 (Reuters) Thailand's snap election on April 2 may have to be postponed because it is unlikely to yield the full 500-seat parliament required by the constitution to name a prime minister, the Election Commission (EC) said today.
EC chairman Wassana Permlap told reporters he believed the election, being boycotted by the three main opposition parties, could not produce the required quota of 100 ''party list'' parliamentary candidates.
He also said there was also a ''high probability'' that some of the remaining 400 constituency seats would not be filled.
