Mr. Itthiphol Kunplume has been successful in mayoral re-election bid in a landslide election predicted by almost everyone. He defeated three independent candidates who, among them, scored less than 20 % of Itthiphol’s 21,446 votes. Voter turnout was rather lower than expected at 41 percent which some pundits blamed on the rain whilst others pointed to confusion over a new district voting pattern or the fact that the election campaign seemed scarcely to mention the defeated candidates.
