Poll: Majority agree to political reform

- +

A majority of the Thai people say it is now time for political reform and agree with most of the steps taken by the government to go in that direction, Suan Dusit Poll revealed on Sunday. 

Suan Dusit carried out a survey on political reform on 1,648 people aged 18 and over throughout the country between Aug 12-17.

To the question of whether it is now time for political reform, the majority or 72.9% said it is, citing the problems of political divisiveness, corruption and abuse of power which have obstructed the country's development. However, 27.71% said it is not yet time for political reform because most people still do not have a proper understanding of it.
