Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva will lead the ruling Democrat Party's candidates for constituency registration on Tuesday.

Registration of candidates running for election in the 375 single-seat constituencies will begin on Tuesday and will be completed by May 28.

Candidates in Bangkok can file their applications at the Thai- Japanese stadium in Din Daeng area, where party-list registration was arranged from May 19 to May 23.

In provincial areas, candidates can register at the provincial city hall.

Constituency candidates are not required to draw lots for their numbers on the ballots. Each party already has a number through the drawing of lots during party-list registration last week.

A snap general election will be held on July 3 with over 31 parties running their election campaign. The ruling Democrat Party got No. 10 candidacy in the lots drawing while its major rival, the opposition Pheu Thai, obtained No. 1.
