Even as he was being re-elected in a landslide, Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome’s legal team filed a complaint with police about election flyers that faked his signature above text crafted to get people to vote against him.

Itthiphol’s attorney, Amnart Thiengthum, June 17, asked police to investigate the unknown perpetrator behind the A4-size flyers which said “Please Choose Itthiphol Kunplome: You’ll get a Pattaya Skytrain for sure!” The mayor’s proposed downtown monorail idea was ridiculed widely before being pigeon-holed by national budget makers.
