Majority Thais hail House dissolution: Poll

The majority of Thais supported Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra's decision to dissolve the House and call for the national election on February 2, according to Dusit Poll.

Of 1,094 respondents in the survey conducted during December 9-10, 78.13 per cent agreed with this resolution, saying that it would ease political tension and return the power to the people.

Only 9.37 per cent opposed the decision, saying that the Yingluck government was elected. They viewed that the Thai political condition would remain the same after the House dissolution.

The remaining 12.50 per cent said the House dissolution would not solve anything, as demonstrations continue.
