Poll: Corrupt govt still acceptable

A majority of people still hold an attitude that corruption by a government is acceptable as long as they also benefit from it, Abac Poll revealed on Sunday.

Opinion polls conducted by Abac have continued to show this trend.

The percentage of the respondents who did not mind corruption by a government as long as they also benefit from it was 64 in January 2011, 64.6 in November 2011, 64.7 in January 2012, and 63.4 in June 2012.

The latest poll on this matter was conducted between June 1-9 on 2,142 people in Bangkok, Pathum Thani, Chon Buri, Prachuap Khiri Khan, Chiang Mai, Mae Hong Son, Nakhon Sawan, Udon Thani, Kalasin, Nakhon Ratchasima, Phuket and Songkhla.

Abac Poll director Noppadol Kannikar said what was of concern was that the majority of youngsters aged under 20 also held the same attitude.

Concerning the existing democratic rule in Thailand, most or 76.1 per cent said they were satisfied with it and 23.9 per cent said otherwise.

The majority or 59.2 per cent said the state of chaos in parliament was normal in democracy while 40.8 per cent said what happened was unusual.

The majority or 68.7 per cent of the respondents were satisfied with the role of the military in this situation, while 31.3 per cent said they were a little satisfied or not satisfied at all.

Most or 71.5 per cent of the respondents did not want to see a coup, saying that it is not the right way to solve the country's problems, while 28.5 per cent preferred a coup, saying it could help end the state of chaos.
