Election Fever

The local election is coming up this weekend in Chiang Mai. Candidates are not very active in getting out and about to meet and greet and inform their electorate about their policies and manifestos. Instead a series of election posters are put up round town showing candidates dressed, for some unknown reason, as lab technicians

These is supplemented by scooters riding around playing loud music, presumably to attract attention and make voters aware of the forthcoming election

 

Essentially it boils down to a beauty parade with voters having to make a decision based upon who has the most honest face. Ironically there is a real beauty pageant running alongside the election for ‘Miss Chiang Mai Election’. Perhaps first prize should be a seat in local government!
