Most Thais think court acted rightly on charter, poll finds
BANGKOK: -- Most Thais believe the Constitution Court's ruling on the charter amendment issue last week was just and in accordance with the law, a Dusit Poll survey revealed yesterday.
Around 81 per cent of people surveyed said the court's decision was in accordance with the law, 62 per cent were relieved no violence followed the court ruling, 45 per cent believed the charter amendment should be put off, 42 per cent thought politicians' quarrelling over the charter amendment was a big political problem, and 64 per cent believed politicians would continue to wrangle and play politics.
Meanwhile, Abac poll results showed that 61 per cent accepted the court's decision but would let others make their own judgement and not try to persuade them to accept the decision; 23 per cent accepted the decision and would try to persuade others to agree with them; 6.5 per cent did not agree with the court's ruling and would persuade others not to accept the ruling; and 8.8 per cent rejected the ruling but would not attempt to persuade others to follow their stance.
Around 72.8 per cent of respondents wanted an end to polarisation in the country; 72.6 per cent wanted Thailand to be united; 70.4 wanted an end to involving the monarchy in politics; 67 per cent wanted Thais to know their rights and responsibilities; and 66.4 per cent wanted politicians to stop fighting and focus on managing policies.
About 52 per cent supported amending the charter by particular articles, 14.9 per cent wanted the whole charter amended, and one third did not support any charter amendment at all.
Around 61 per cent wanted to give the Yingluck government more than two years to run the country or serve the full four-year term, 52.4 per cent supported a Cabinet reshuffle now; 36.9 per cent said the Cabinet reshuffle would be premature; while 10.7 per cent of respondents said a reshuffle was long overdue.

All hail the man afar.

Oh come on, whybother, you and your analysis of percentages!
"62 per cent were relieved no violence followed the court ruling" Therefore you conclude "38% wanted violence after the decision".
"72.6 per cent wanted Thailand to be united" Therefore you conclude "27% wanted Thailand divided"
Pathetic. You don't happen to write headlines for The Nation do you................

Me I am prepared to say the judges made their decision according to the law.
However any doubt that arises is because of the threats and intimidation that went before.
Had that not happened then we could all say the judges did their job in the proper manner without fear of any reprocussions to themselves, their families or the country.
The most unfortunate thing about it all is that those who made the threats ETC, will believe that they influanced the judges decision in their favour and this will set a benchmark for the future.
Meaning that from now on any time there is a court case that they may have an interest in, IE Jutaporne ETC, they will be encouraged to use the same tactic.
Ah well another step towards red democracy, closer to the Cambodian way.
