54% want Yingluck to take responsibility for deadlock

Most people believe Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra should take responsibility for the raft of problems that have inflicted a heavy toll on the country and her caretaker administration, reported Dusit Poll.

About 54 per cent of the 1,318 people surveyed countrywide from Wednesday to Saturday believe she should show responsibility for the "political turmoil" as the country's leader, although no information was given on how.

About 9 per cent thought she should continue working for the public interest, and 26 per cent felt she needs to urgently resolve issues to shore up her image and credibility while 11 per cent did not want her to meddle in court cases or abuse her power.

The respondents were asked to comment on what Yingluck should do for incidents that have pushed the country towards recession and threatened to rip the state apart.

These include the months-long anti-government protests to oust her, the Constitutional Court ruling against the 2-trillion-baht (US$62 billion) loan bill that has delayed investment in basic infrastructure, her wrong judgement that led to a huge loss of state money for the unfinished February 2 election, the corruption-plagued rice pledging scandal that has led to massive financial losses to the state, and the court order to reinstate Thawil Plainsri as secretary-general of the National Security Council that has shaken public trust in her.

Other problems cited by the pollster include the bid to change the charter on the make-up of the Senate, the 350-billion-baht water management project that has faced heavy scrutiny, and charges of negligence against Yingluck in connection with the 2011 flood.

Asked if they were Yingluck, what would they do, 67 per cent of the respondents said they would clarify doubts and allegations to make |the public understand as much as possible, 17 per cent would call on every sector to brainstorm on quick solutions first, 9 per cent would |continue working as the premier and 6 per cent would be patient and try to correct the problems conscientiously. --The Nation

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
