ONLY 20 per cent of people surveyed in a new Suan Dusit poll said they knew what the Prayut Chan-o-cha government had accomplished.

Suan Dusit Poll conducted the survey this past week to see the extent of people’s awareness about the post-coup government’s work. About 1,100 respondents nation-wide were asked whether they knew what the government was working on.

Only 20 per cent of the respondents said they were aware of what the government had done, attributing it to not closely following political issues, according to results of the survey released yesterday.

Over half the respondents said they knew about the government’s work to some extent, and around eight per cent said they did not know what the government had accomplished because they did not closely follow issues.

Asked what government actions they knew about the most, nearly 80 per cent of respondents identified corruption suppression. Around 75 per cent were aware of registration of the poor, while nearly 70 per cent knew about the high-speed train project.

Some people said they wanted the government to better inform citizens about its Thailand 4.0 project, the new charter and the election, and educational reform.

Asked what work they viewed as the most important achievement of this government, around 85 per cent chose corruption suppression, followed by forest encroachment suppression, and transportation development. Respondents suggested that the government was not sufficiently tackling the economy and military budget, or enforcement of Article 44 on social issues.

On balance, respondents thought the government had done a good job as much as a bad job.
