Most Thais Want Move Forward Party to Lead Government

An opinion survey by King Prajadhipok’s Institute shows that most Thais still favor the Move Forward Party to lead the government. The survey also showed that most Thais want the party’s former leader, Pita Limjaroenrat, to become the Prime Minister (PM).

The institute’s Office of Innovation completed the nationwide survey from May 7th to May 18th. The survey was sent out to 1,020 people aged at least 18 and above.

One of the survey’s questions asked the individuals which party they would vote for if they were going to a polling station in a few days. Around 36 percent of the respondents said they would vote for the Move Forward Party, with the Pheu Thai Party coming in second at 18 percent.

At least 45 percent of respondents also said they would vote for Move Forward when asked which party they would vote for in a party-list election.

Around 47 percent of individuals also responded that they would vote for Pita as the new PM if they could vote now. Former PM General Prayut Chan-o-cha received at least 18 percent.
