The Election Commission and the Ministry of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation have launched a new campaign for university students, encouraging them to render active participation as good citizens in a democratic society.

Election Commissioner Tawatchai Therdphaothai, together with the Minister of Higher Education, Science, Research and Innovation, announced a campaign run under the cooperation between the Election Commission (EC) and the Ministry of Higher Education to promote a correct mindset towards the constitutional monarchy.



This campaign, targeting students from 38 Rajabhat Universities across the country, is aimed at creating young leaders by instilling good citizenship and active democratic participation in the students.

The campaign’s content could be delivered to students as a special class, or an extension to the existing classes, lectures, and activities, which shall be run alongside workshops for student leaders.


The campaign is pushing for the establishment of a training manual for a new general education class on good citizenship. The EC and ministry also hope this campaign would encourage the young generation to help ensure a fair and transparent electoral process. (NNT)
