PDRC's supporters are mainly people in BKK and South: Survey

Over half of Thais, mainly upper middle-income people from Bangkok and the South, showed supports to People's Democratic Reform Committee, according to a survey by Envirocell Thailand.

In the survey conducted during December 1-4 that covered 1,000 respondents in all parts of the country accordingly to the demography, 63 per cent supports the PDRC’s movements. On the opposite, 37 per cent opposes the movements, mostly people in the North and the Northeast who earn low income.

In the same survey by Envirocell, 42 per cent believed that elections would not restore the situation. Of this group, 22 per cent mostly from Bangkok and the South suggest the royal appointment of an interim prime minister until reforms are complete. 10 per cent propose the establishment of a temporary government.

Forty one per cent support national elections, particularly people from the Northeast. Of this group, 15 per cent suggest the two leading parties - Pheu Thai and Democrat - be barred from the race.

Only 18 per cent of the respondents, representing mainly people from the North, wished the Yingluck government complete the term.
