Thailand: Unofficial poll results delayed again as complaints mount

Thailand's Election Commission (EC) announced that although more than 90% of the votes in Sunday's general election had been counted, the wait would continue for the official interim results.

On Sunday night, the EC delayed without explanation a full announcement of preliminary results as a torrent of complaints mounted over apparent mistakes in the count and possible irregularities at the polls.

Nearly 1.9 million votes have been invalidated with 93% of votes tallied, the EC said late Sunday. Earlier counts showed that in a handful of provinces more than half the ballots cast were invalidated.

The EC said the preliminary vote turn-out will be announced on Friday.
