- +

Nearly 70% of people surveyed are concerned that a move to rewrite the 2007 constitution could lead to political violence, Suan Dusit Poll said on Saturday. 

The pollsters at Suan Dusit Rajabhat University surveyed 1,022 people in Bangkok and nearby provinces, seeking their opinions on constitutional amendments, from Dec 4-7.

Asked whether they thought a move to change the charter could trigger unrest, 69.34% of the respondents said yes, because it was an important issue and differences of opinion in the past had led to political conflict and violence, Suan Dusit Poll reported.
