The draft amnesty bill proposed by Pheu Thai MPs could bring about another round of political conflict, according to the survey results released on Saturday by Suan Dusit Poll at Suan Dusit Rajabaht University. 

Draft legislation for a broad amnesty for people facing politically related charges, signed by 42 MPs of the Pheu Thai Party led by Worachai Hema, was submitted to House Speaker Somsak Kiatsuranont on Thursday.

The pollster said opinions on the move to seek amnesty for offenders in connection with the political rallies by Pheu Thai MPs were sought from 1,079 people in Bangkok and nearby provinces, between March 6 and March 8.
