- +

A majority of people are of the opinion that reforms should be made before the next election, fearing that any earlier voting would just be nullified again because the protests by anti-government groups are continuing, according to Nida Poll. 

The poll was conducted by the National Institute for Development Administration (Nida) and involved 1,255 respondents of various occupations and levels of education on March 24-25.

Asked what should come first, reforms or a new election, following the nullification of the Feb 2 polls, 52.51% of the respondents said reforms should come first, 38.25% said an election should be held as soon as possible before reforms, 3.19% said reforms and an election could be carried out simultaneously, and 6.05% had no comment.
