A majority of people say they are sick of politics and don’t back either the ruling Pheu Thai Party or the opposition Democrats during the three-day debate which begin today, according to the results of a Suan Dusit poll released on Sunday.
Asked to which side - the government or the opposition - they wanted to lend their support, the majority (56.14%) said they did not go for either side because they were fed up with Thai politics, saying it was filled with quarrels and personal interests.
Only 17.76% said they cheered on the government because it had shown an intention to improve the well-being of the people while 13.6% supported the opposition, reasoning that they like the party’s perception and working style, and 12.5% said they supported both sides because they want them to help solve problems and truly work together for the country.
