Campaign for Bangkok governor winds down

March 2, 2013 at 5:12 PM   |   Comments

BANGKOK, March 2 (UPI) -- Thailand's political parties campaigned hard Saturday, the day before the election for governor of Bangkok.

All electioneering had to stop at 6 p.m., the Bangkok Post reported.

Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, leader of the Pheu Thai Party, joined her candidate, Police Gen. Pongsapat Pongcharoen, in a car and truck caravan through the capital. Several cabinet ministers participated.

Sukhumbhand Paribatra, the Democrat candidate, was joined by former Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva. A caravan of pickup trucks advertised Sukhumbhand's candidacy.

Late polls showed Pongsapat leading his rival, although both Pheu Thai and the Democrats said they believe the race is going to be a close one.
