Poll says majority of Thais didn’t read draft Constitution

Super Poll says over 80% of Thai people never read the contents in the current draft Constitution, although almost all Thais knew that today December 10 is the Constitution Day.

The finding was based on its interviews with 1,145 samples during December 6-10.

Super Poll said 91.9% of the samples knew that today or December 10 is the Constitution Day.

But what is worrisome is that 81.5% of them never read contents in the draft Constitution.

Besides, Super Poll revealed that 35.8% of the samples it interviewed recalled what they heard about the draft Constitution first was only news of conflicts, during the drafting process, between political groups and members of the National Legislative Assembly, and the Constitution Drafting Commission.

But 32.7% said the draft Constitution would be if benefit to the country’s wealth, stability and sustainability, while 12.4% said they knew the draft Constitution would allow more participation by the people.

Only 11.4% said the draft charter has several articles that will benefit all without bias.
