Nearly two-thirds of the people believe the real leader and decision maker of the government is former prime minister Thaksin Shinwatra, according to the result of an Abac poll published on Sunday.
The poll to gauge public opinion on "the country's real leader and causes of conflict in Thai society" was conducted between Sept 16 to 21 on 2,103 people aged 18 and over in 17 provinces.
