Politicians viewed with increasing disdain

BANGKOK (The Nation): The political situation in Thailand is boring, plagued by problems and has no solution in sight. That is the assessment of 60 per cent of the people surveyed across the country by a Suan Dusit Poll released yesterday.

The opinion survey was an attempt to glimpse what people are thinking about the political turmoil. Politicians are viewed by many with disdain and the profession of politics has received low approval ratings.

About 57 per cent of the respondents in the poll say politicians appear to be obsessed with enriching themselves and are preoccupied with their personal power and individual interests. Some 84 per cent say they don’t want their children to opt for a career in politics.

Only 21 per cent say they still view politicians as professionals devoted to serving the public.
