ABAC Poll: 83.6% of Thais agree to see PM Yingluck continue working


BANGKOK, 9 September 2012 – The latest street poll has shown that around 4 in 5 Thais are willing to let the Prime Minister continue working in office. 

ABAC Poll Director Noppadon Kannika said on Sunday that the latest poll on the first year of the Yingluck Shinawatra government showed that 56.8 percent of Thai people have been satisfied with the public health policy of the Pheu Thai Party while 30.9 percent are content with the Democrat Party’s work performance.

There remain some 12.3 percent that have been dissatisfied with both parties, while 44.9 percent are particularly not happy with the two parties’ drug-clampdown and cost-of-living-related policies.

However, 83.6 percent agreed to let PM Yingluck continue working in the government, while 80.3 percent said former-PM Thaksin Shinawatra should be allowed to return to Thailand to fight all his cases.

In addition, about 60.4 percent find nothing wrong with Metropolitan Police Chief Pol Lt-Gen Kamronwit Thoopkrachang’s close ties with ex-PM Thaksin, saying they are personal issues.
