Poll backs Prayuth as PM
« on: August 03, 2014, 12:09:31 PM »
Military junta chief Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha is qualified to become the prime minister whom the people can depend on.

This is the result of the poll conducted  by Bangkok Poll after the 200-member National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) was announced and became effective Thursday.

The poll revealed that Gen Prayuth received 80.5% of people it asked whether he is qualified to be the next prime minister and could be depended on if the NLA proposed his name.

Only 4.5% disagreed while 15%  remained uncertain.

Asked what they thought about the  cabinet list speculated in the media if they are suitable in the positions, 81.4% saw Gen Prayuth suitable as PM, while 72% viewed  M.R. Pridiyathorn Devakula fit the finance job, and 70.1% favored former Army chief Gen Anupong Paochinda as defense and deputy prime minister.

69.9% gave former World Trade Organization chief Supachai Panitchapakdi suitable for commerce, and 55.7% backed ACM Prajin Juntong as deputy prime minister and transport minister.

Army chief-of-staff Gen Daopong Rattanasuwan received 53.2% for interior ministry, while 50% voted for Gen Chatchai Sarikalya as energy minister.

Re: NLA vote on next PM set for August 21, 22

The National Legislative Assembly will call a vote on the next prime minister on August 21 or 22, its deputy chairman said yesterday.

Surachai Liengboonlertchai said he supports General Prayuth Chan-ocha, chief of the National Council for Peace and Order, for the position.

The Army chief is the most suitable candidate because he has demonstrated complete dedication to work for the country.

"But the decision rests with the NLA'' he said.

Jade Siratharanont, another assemblyman, said he backs Prayuth and most of the chamber also agrees that Prayuth is the best candidate to lead the country at this political juncture.

There would be no need to present other candidates. Most surveys also showed that Prayuth had the public's approval, he said.

"It depends on whether Prayuth will accept,'' he said.

Master Poll's latest survey showed that 84 per cent of local leaders believe Prayuth should assume the PM's role.

Surachai said the NLA would hold the first reading of the fiscal 2015 budget bill, an urgent agenda item, on Friday.

The NLA has only one month to scrutinise the budget bill before the fiscal year begins, he noted.
