MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The military-controlled government of Thai Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has gained the highest approval rating in 18 months, a poll conducted by Bangkok University showed on Saturday.
The survey revealed that the current government scored 6.19 out of 10, while 18 months ago it secured only 5.92 points, the university said.
Generally, satisfaction with the prime minister as head of the government has grown to 7.57 from 7.24, the educational institution added, pointing at the poll’s results.
A total of 1,197 respondents from across Thailand took part in the poll.
Thailand’s current government came into power following a May 22, 2014 military coup nearly a year after a political crisis had led to mass anti-government protests.
