he planned attempt of the Thai Patriots Network (TPN) to submit a petition to His Majesty the King to oust the government is deemed improper, according to a recent survey by Suan Dusit Poll of Rajabhat Suan Dusit University.
The survey was conducted among 1,251 respondents in Bangkok and its vicinities regarding the ongoing protest of the TPN. The group, an affiliation of the People’s Alliance of Democracy (PAD), is blasting the government for failure to take action over the arrest of seven Thais in Cambodia.
44.67% of the respondents believed that the protest was caused by the delay in the government reaction; however, 20.27% of them said the rally was within the TPN’s rights, but it must be done in a suitable frame.
Regarding the planned attempt to lodge a petition to HM the King to oust the Democrat-led government, 64.81% of the respondents deemed it inappropriate, reasoning that the group should let the government deal with the issue to help the Thai detainees.
42.95% of the respondents urged that the government express a clearer stance and enthusiasm to take strong actions and bring all the seven Thai people back. 25.36% of them agreed that Thai Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva should negotiate directly with his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen.
