The poll was conducted on Sept 5-7 in telephone interviews with 1,312 people aged 18 of various levels of education, occupations and incomes to compile their opinions on Gen Prawit’s performance during the past two weeks as caretaker prime minister after the Constitutional Court ordered Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha suspended from duties pending the court’s ruling on his 8-year tenure, reports the Bangkok Post.

Asked whether it would be appropriate for Gen Prawit, in his caretaker position, to reshuffle the Cabinet, most of them, 58.92% said “no” - with 46.34% saying it would not be appropriate at all and 12.58% said it would not be appropriate. On the other side,  21.57% said “yes”, very much, and 16.00% said it would be quite appropriate.

The rest, 3.51%, had no answer or were not interested.

Asked whether it would be appropriate for Gen Prawit to dissolve the House of Representatives and call a new election, a large majority, 80.34%, said "yes" - with 63.80% saying it would be most appropriate and 16.54% fairly appropriate. On the other side, 13.95% said it would not be appropriate at all and 4.40% not quite appropriate.

The Thai problem is overaged Generals, probably living on a medicine regime, what difuse clear acting, to keep walking, discreet supported under the arm pits for that like Prawit, are out of touch with reality. They make their own reality and force that around. Younger people through world media see how things could be better, blocked by the 'dino's'.
