Mr. Praphan affirmed that all ballots would be tallied and accounted for by today (December 24) and that they would be sent for inspection on Wednesday (December 26). He stated that the issue of penalties must still also be resolved with the national police being tasked with reviewing cases and dealing with the issuance of penalties.
