73 per cent of respondents in a public opinion poll want a third round of negotiations between the government and the anti-government Red Shirt protesters after Saturday’s clashes between combined security forces and the protesters in the Thai capital which have so far left 19 people dead and 825 wounded.

Noppadol Kannikar, director of Assumption University’s ABAC Poll, said the survey, conducted Saturday among 1,124 people in 17 provinces nationwide, including Bangkok, found that 72.8 per cent of respondents want a third round of talks between the government and protesters held in a bid to end the current political crisis in Thailand.

Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva held negotiations with key anti-government protesters of the United Front for Democracy against Dictatorship (UDD) on March 28 and 29. The talks ended in failure as the UDD insisted that the prime minister must dissolve the House within 15 days while Mr Abhisit reasserted that he was willing to dissolve it within nine months and call for a general election.
