Thai Election Commission Blames Software for Counting Errors

Friday, 29 March 2019 11:46 AM

BANGKOK (AP) — Thailand's Election Commission, facing widespread criticism for inconsistent and delayed vote totals from last Sunday's general election, says computer software was partly to blame.

It said Friday that during early reporting of the election results, its tabulation software had trouble handling data entered simultaneously from several points and sometimes displayed incorrect numbers.

The commission on Thursday issued a 208-page compilation of votes in every constituency, but some tallies still failed to add up correctly.

Poll-watching organizations and opposition parties have criticized the commission for lack of transparency. Its figures show the party supporting the current military junta had the most popular votes, trailed by its main challenger, the party ousted by the military in a 2014 coup.
