Half of poll respondents, or 50.32 percent, believed the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra would likely complete its term if it stopped moving forward efforts to amend the Constitution, as well as withdrew the proposed reconciliation bills, according to an opinion survey, conducted by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University.
The poll, released on Sunday, was conducted among 2,562 respondents nationwide between June 25-30 on the topic “Thai Politics and Government Term.”
Almost half, or 45.23 percent, of respondents said the government should delay the charter amendment as thorough study was needed to make sure that the move will not benefit any particular person.
The delay would help reduce current conflicts.
Meanwhile, 28.31 percent said there should be no constitutional amendment, as even if it were done, they believed related problems cannot be resolved, while another 26.46 percent gave the green light for the move, citing the current charter as not acceptable and it was the government’s promise during the election campaign.
Regarding the opinions on the national reconciliation bills proposed in the Parliament, 40.49 percent of respondents said the bills should be withdrawn as it caused the conflict.
