Most people regard the government of Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha as lacking the capacity to tackle economic woes, an opinion poll has found.

The Nida Poll of the National Institute of Development Administration carried out the survey among 1,260 respondents nationwide and announced the results on Sunday.

The Nida Poll found that 46.67 per cent of the respondents felt that the on-going economic woes were due to the government’s lack of ability to solve the economic problems.

In the open-ended question, 29.21 per cent of respondents blamed the woes on rising prices of consumer goods combined with low income and 24.13 per cent said it was down to the global economic slump. Meanwhile, 22.54 per cent of the respondents said the politicians in power have not paid enough attention to tackling economic woes, 20.79 per cent blamed the situation on falling prices of commodities and 13.65 per cent blamed natural disasters.
