PRD organizes forum to encourage first-time voters to go to poll


Bangkok – The Public Relations Department (PRD) organized a recent forum to encourage first-time voters to go to the poll on March 24, 2019.

PRD Director General Lt Gen Sansern Kaewkamnerd presided over the event at Rajabhat Bansomdejchaophraya University in Bangkok on the topic of “The Road to Build Thailand: Election 2019,” attended by some 1,000 students, university lecturers and officials.

Deputy PRD Director General Tassanee Pholchaniko said the forum is part of a campaign to encourage some 6.4 million first-time voters nationwide to cast their votes. The department had held similar forums four times earlier in the provinces.

The campaign aims to inform first-time voters on the new election system so that they can exercise their electoral right correctly.

The PRD is running campaigns on radio, television, online media, and through offline events to raise the public awareness and understanding about the upcoming vote.
