Thaksin should take 'economic role'

- +

A majority of people think former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra's role in Thai society should be on solving economic problems than on resolving political conflict, according to the results of an Abac poll revealed on Sunday. 

The poll was conducted between Jan 7-12 on 2,071 people in Bangkok, Phetchaburi, Saraburi, Nakhon Pathom, Chon Buri, Kamphaeng Phet, Phetchabun, Chiang Mai, Maha Sarakham, Roi-et, Nakhon Ratchasima, Loei, Khon Kaen, Ubon Ratchathani, Narathiwat, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Songkhla.

Asked whether conflict in society would end if Thaksin was excluded from being involved in solving problems, 52.7% said "no" and 47.3% said "yes".
