Poll favours using Section 44 to suppress corruption

Dusit Poll says Section 44 of the interim constitution remains a favourite tool to suppress corruption.

The survey was conducted to sound out opinions from 1,180 samples across the nation during February 20-24 on the enforcement of Section 44 of the interim constitution to resolve national problems.

The poll showed that 86.61%of the samples supported the use of Section 44 to resolve corruption problem rather than the crackdown of influential people or mafias which received 80.68% support.

However 74.83% supported the use of the section to suppress drug trafficking, 72.03% for police reshuffling, and 68.47% for social regulation.

The poll also concluded that 82.97%of the samples would like the prime minister to ensure that the power should be used with transparency and fairness.

Besides they wanted to see that such power must be used only to particularly resolve a significant issue, and not all issues.
