Voters want election as govt support drops

Support for the military-backed government has dropped again, to just 13.6 per cent, according to a new poll.

The Abac Poll Research Centre survey results were released at a brainstorming session held at the Thai Journalists' Association.

Centre director Noppadon Kannika said the survey found 69.8 per cent of respondents were disappointed in the current political situation.

These respondents included those supporting the Surayud Chulanont government, he added,

The survey discovered 13.6 per cent of respondents supported the government while 6.6 per cent were against it. The majority of 79.8 per cent had no opinion.

But 71.2 per cent opposed anti-government rallies, Noppadon said.

When asked to identify what disappoints them about politics today, respondents named protests and conflict, South unrest, the economy and reports about the movements of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra.

Most said news of a general election made them happy.

Voters want the government to improve the economy, the South, the general election and government efficiency, Noppadon said.

The survey was conducted among 4,135 people in 24 provinces between June 10 and June 23.
