Poll: Most think Yingluck will not return

- +

Most people believe former prime minister Yingluck Shinawatra will not return to the country by Aug 10 and a majority are certain she will attend her elder brother Thaksin's birthday party in France on July 26, according to a poll by the National Institute of Development Administration (Nida). 

The poll was conducted on July 18-19 on 1,247 people of various levels of education, ages and occupations throughout the country to gauge their opinion on the National Council for Peace and Order's (NCPO) permission for Ms Yingluck and her son to travel abroad between July 20-Aug 10 despite the fact that the National Anti-Corruption Commission (NACC) has ruled there are sufficient grounds to pursue dereliction of duty allegations against her. 

The anti-graft body will also recommend the Office of the Attorney General indict her for failing to deal with corruption and losses in the rice-pledging scheme.
