- +

A majority of people do not agree with granting amnesty for political offenders in connection with violent protests between Sept 19, 2006 - May 10, 2011, according to the latest NIDA Poll conducted by the National Institute on Development Administration. 

The opinion survey involved 1,252 respondents  from all walks of life in all regions from March 11-12.

A majority of the respondents, 57.43%, said they did not agree with the proposed amnesty, reasoning that wrongdoers must be punished and that the proposal seemed to be favouring a certain group of people; 31.71% agreed with it; and 10.86% were uncertain about the issue.
