The preliminary results of the “BNK48 12th Single Senbatsu General Election”, the 3rd Election event for the 1st time in 2 years, were announced via the group’s official Facebook live stream on March 11, and Noey (24) of Team BⅢ stood in the 1st place. Third place went to Kaning (17) of CGM48 Trainee with 7,309.99 tokens, followed by Noey (24) of Team B III with 13,108.65 tokens and Namnueng (25) with 2,564.51 tokens. The top 48 were announced.
The general election, a big event eagerly awaited due to the Covid-19 disaster, got off to a tumultuous start. Noey, who had placed 7th to 6th in the past two elections, rocketed to the front of the pack.
Noey, who was relaxed and listening to the announcement with the other BNK48 members, put her hands together in front of her face and thanked them with a deep bow, though her hat and large mask made it almost impossible to see her expression.
Second place also went to Namnueng, who had been ranked 10th consecutively for the previous 2 Election, both Noey and Namnueng had been BNK48’s singles center and were BNK48’s signature members, but this was the first time they had made such a splash in a general election.
The biggest surprise was the third place of Kaning, a 17-year-old research student from CGM48 in Chiang Mai, who made her first BNK48 single debut with “Sayonara Crawl,” which was included in the voting ticket this time. As a member of CGM48 she made the center position for “Melon Juice” and the third song “มะลิ (Jasmine),” but in her first appearance, she was ranked 40th. Her sudden leap up the ladder was a surprise.
As her fellow CGM48 members cheered her on, Kanin, wearing glasses and a mask, modestly responded by waving to the camera. Pim (16) also did well for CGM48, placing 5th.
Music (21), who has placed 3rd 2 times in a row and is aiming for a long-cherished top spot, placed 7th, and Mobile (19), who has a good record of placing 4th to 5th, placed 6th. The first day of the event was a good start.
However, the month-long battle has just begun. The deadline for voting is April 7. The final result will be announced on April 9.
