PM's popularity soars 3 times for downgrading ties

The popularity rating of Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva has tripled after his decisive action to downgrade the diplomatic ties with Cambodia, Abac Poll said in a survey released on Friday.

In comparison to 23.3 per cent in the survey in September, Abhisit's popularity leaped to 68.6 per cent.

The prime minister was most popular in the South (88.2 per cent), followed by the Central Region (68.9 per cent), Bangkok (68.8 per cent) and the North (64.6 per cent).

About 53.1 per cent in the Northeast  voiced support for his leadership.

Factors attributing to the rise in popularity include the sentiment against Cambodian's attack on the Thai judicial system and the concern for consequences of the Cambidian's appointment of fugitive ex-premier Thaksin Shinawatra as adviser.
