Prime Minister Prayut Chan-ocha has asked for feedback from the people about his four questions presented on Friday before the country go to the polls.
In his weekly nationwide address, the prime minister said that election, although an important integral part of democracy, does not mean full-fledged democracy. He added that he wanted to see democracy fail in Thailand, but would like Thailand to be democratic with a government that practices good governance and capable of leading the country towards sustainable prosperity and stability.
He went on saying that he wanted to cultivate the good values of democracy in the mindset of the Thai people, to set a new precedent for the country.
He listed his four questions as follows and said he would like feedback from the people.
1. Do you think, in the next election, we will get a government which has good governance?
2. If not, what will you do?
3. Election is an important integral party of democracy, but election alone without the regard for the future of the country and others is right or wrong?
4. Do you think bad politicians should be given a chance of political comeback; and if there is conflict again, who will solve it and by what means?
