Abhisit and Korn Were Registered to Vote in UK as Citizens
Abhisit, as well as former Finance Minister Korn Chatikavanij, were registered as electors (voters) at St Johns College, University of Oxford on 10th October 1983, giving them both eligibility to vote from 16th Feb 1984 to 15th Feb 1985, and again in the 1986 register, and again in 1987.
The Oxford City Council, who organize the “electoral roll” or “register of electors” have informed us that the colleges forward the names of students who are eligible to vote to them. You gain eligibility to vote if you are a British, Irish or Commonwealth (ex-Empire) student. The council also informed us that they double check with the college if they are unsure of the eligibility to vote of someone the college puts forward, and if there is any doubt regarding the citizenship of the voter, they are able to show their birth certificate to be included on the voter register. This means that Abhisit (and Korn) enrolled at Oxford using their British nationalities and that Abhisit’s name was then added to the register of electors by St Johns College, his official address.
St Johns College also confirmed this process telling us that at the start of each academic year (late September of any year) they are asked by the Oxford City Council to forward the names of students eligible to vote. The college deduces voter registration eligibility by the nationality put on the enrollment form by the student. Proof of nationality for all British, Irish and Commonwealth students would be required and would need to be provided by the student at the time of enrollment. This means that Abhisit actively and knowingly pronounced himself as a British citizen when he enrolled at St Johns College, Oxford University in 1983.
It is clear, beyond all doubt, Abhisit was “active” as a British citizen. He has known about this for almost 30 years and has lied about it consistently since.
