Poll: Thais lose trust in govt, CNS

More than 50 per cent of the Thais now believe the government and the
Council for National Security (CNS) are no longer able to solve
political problems, according to a university survey.

Some 53.7 per cent of 1,321 respondents living in Bangkok and major
cities in the country including Chiang Mai, Khon Kaen, Nakhon Pathom
and Ayutthaya feel the government and the CNS could not put an end to
problems in the country.

The poll, surveyed between Feb 13 to 19 by Bangkok University, was
conducted under the title “The Future of Thailand in People’s Opinion.”

Some 88.2 per cent of the respondents said they are concerned with political situations in the country.

About 17.5 per cent of them worry about the drafting of the new
constitution, 16.6 per cent about a counter-coup, 16.5 per cent about
political movements of ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra, 15.9
per cent about the work of the government, and 15.7 per cent about
convicting Mr Thaksin and his cronies in alleged corruption charges.

When ask what they think about political situations in the next six
months, after the drafting of the constitution is expected to be
completed, about 35.3 per cent of them are uncertain that things will
improve. A slightly smaller number, 31.9 per cent, think the situations
will not be different from now. Only 24.6 per cent are positive and
said the situations will likely to improve.

The majority of the respondents, or 69.8 per cent, do not want Mr Thaksin to become a prime minister again.
