A majority of people believe there may be a cabinet change following the resignation of Yongyuth Wichaidit as deputy prime minister and interior minister, Suan Dusit Poll revealed on Sunday.
The poll was conducted on 1,079 people in Bangkok and nearby provinces on Saturday after Mr Yongyuth tendered his resignation, which takes effect from Oct 1. Mr Yongyuth was found by the National Anti-Corruption Commission to have committed a serious breach of discipline in the Alpine land case.
To the question of whether they thought Mr Yongyuth's resignation would have a political impact, the majority, or 55.20%, believed there would be some political changes which might include a cabinet reshuffle to find his replacement while 44.80% did not think so, reasoning that Mr Yongyuth could still work for the Pheu Thai Party.
