Repaying farmers overdue money from the rice-pledging scheme has been the National Council for Peace and Order's (NCPO) most impressive action to date, according to Suan Dusit, with 89 per cent of respondents stating this

The survey, conducted on 1,556 people from June 16-20, found that the NCPO’s next four most impressive actions were the crackdown on illegal weapons, drugs, gambling and influential “mafia” figures (75 per cent), reducing the cost of living including capping gas and oil prices (74 per cent), the investigation into the transparency of state enterprise boards (71 per cent) and the structural reform of the energy sector (64 per cent).
