Poll: Majority of respondents worried over rising commodities prices

About 66.5 per cent of respondents in a survey conducted recently by Bangkok University's Bangkok Poll said they are worried over the rising cost of living in Thailand.
The survey on 1,194 people nationwide showed that 37.3 per cent of total respondents were stressed over falling prices of agricultural products, followed by the narcotics problem at 36.7 per cent, and 33.9 per cent indicated social divisiveness over political differences.
Some 34.7 per cent of the total respondents said they wanted the government to solve the high cost of living, followed by 18.2 per cent who wanted the government to shore up agricultural products prices, 15 per cent indicated suppressing corruption, 10.5 per cent on solving drugs and crime, and 9.9 per cent on resolving social divisiveness.
After the government having administered the country for almost two months, 57.3 per cent of the total respondents said they were satisfied with the performance of Gen Prayut Chan-o-cha's administration.
About 55.5 per cent of the respondents admitted they have become less stressed over political differences among people in the country now, compared to before the military seized power in the May 22 bloodless coup.
Surprisingly, 31 per cent of respondents claimed they had never been stressed over Thai politics. (MCOT online news)
