PHUKET: Uncertainty looms over Phuket polls as hurdles multiply for a successful national election tomorrow.

Perhaps the most significant obstacle to be jumped is getting the party list ballots for Phuket out of Chumphon Province and distributed throughout the island.

Protesters in Chumphon are preventing staffers at a post office housing the ballots from distributing them to other southern provinces, said Phuket Election Commissioner Somchai Srisutthiyakorn.
