Prayut remains top choice for next PM – Pheu Thai preferred party

Published

 on 

The Thai PM has come out on top in another opinion poll as next year’s election starts to become cemented onto the February 24 date.

General Prayut Chan-o-cha iss the most popular choice to be PM after the next election – but there’s doubt the political party linked to him will be a winner – according to a new poll.

The Nation reports that, in the Nida Poll results released on Sunday, 28.8 per cent of respondents picked the Pheu Thai Party to win the election.

Most respondents have no faith that date will be honoured, however. Nearly 53 per cent said they expected another postponement. More than 45 per cent said they trusted the government on the schedule. That left 2.1 per cent unsure.

The Palang Pracharat Party, which plans to nominate Prayut as its prime ministerial candidate, finished second with 20.6 per cent support among poll respondents.

It was followed by the Democrat Party (19.6 per cent), Future Forward Party (15.5) and Seri Ruam Thai Party (4.2).

Nida (the National Institute of Development Administration (Nida) polled 1,251 eligible voters age 18 and up in all regions of the country last Monday and Tuesday (September 17-18).

PM Prayut was the top choice to lead the post-election government, garnering 29.7 per cent of support from the respondents, it found.
