Jaruvan popular, poll shows
Published on September 26 , 2005 - More than half of the respondents to a survey by Suan Dusit Poll want to see Khunying Jaruvan Maintaka resume her work as auditor-general after Visut Montriwat withdrew his nomination last week. The poll surveyed 1,679 people in Bangkok and nearby provinces about the issue on the weekend.
The result was that 56 per cent feel that Jaruvan should return to her office, 24 per cent think the agencies concerned should rule first on whether she can resume her work, and 20 per cent think a new selection process should be started for the post.
Some 75 per cent believed Visut had done the right thing in backing down from nomination and paving a way out of the impasse, but 15 per cent were not certain if Visut’s move was the correct resolution of a complex problem. The other 10 per cent believed Visut should not have withdrawn.
