The Rohingya who recently arrived from Myanmar were smuggled into the country, so they must be prosecuted under Thai law for illegal entry, Deputy Prime Minister Surapong Towichukchaikul said yesterday. He added, however, that legal procedures could be flexibly applied, especially in regard to women and children.

Voters will back honest, hard-working candidates: poll

The Nation on Sunday

Bangkok voters prefer a governor candidate who is honest and hard-working, according to a public opinion poll.

Almost 40 per cent of the 1,215 people surveyed said they would vote for the candidate who is honest and has a good image, according to results of the survey by Rajabhat Suan Dusit University's Suan Dusit Poll. Another 39 per cent said they were looking for a candidate who is hard-working, patient and responsible.

More than 47 per cent of the respondents said they would support the candidate who had a platform they liked, particularly regarding measures to ease traffic congestion, preventing flooding, and turning Bangkok into a better city.

The survey was conducted between Monday and Friday.

EDITORIAL

The underdog factor in the Bangkok election

The Nation

BANGKOK: -- Top candidates Sukhumbhand and Pongsapat will be keen to be both forthright, and humble

Bangkok gubernatorial elections are extraordinary in that, previously, underdogs or candidates who portray themselves as underdogs stand a great chance. The new race has just begun and most signs suggest that the trend is very much respected. Candidates want to be seen as a political victim, or someone facing a smear campaign so dirty the only vindication is an election victory. Bangkok loves humble candidates, and that is an intriguing challenge for the big parties.
