Chiang Rai Rajabhat University, Ms Yingluck and Pheu Thai’s candidates for constituency MPs addressed about 20,000 supporters.
The 44-year-old businesswoman-turned-politician has apparently overshadowed Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva and his Democrat Party’s campaign
Ms Yingluck and the Pheu Thai candidates finished their election campaign in the northern province of Chiangrai yesterday.
Surichai Wun-gaeo, a political science lecturer at Chulalongkorn University, said Ms Yingluck was being introduced to Thai voters as “a new product” in the political market
Assumption University’s poll centre interviewed 2,333 adults in 17 provinces from May 16-21 to gauge public opinion over the leadership images of Mr Abhisit and Ms Yingluck.
The result, released yesterday, showed that Ms Yingluck’s leadership image improved significantly in all aspects, such as knowledge and capability, political ethics, honesty, vision, public acceptance and politeness, said Mr Noppadol.
Before the nomination, only 10.9% of respondents said Ms Yingluck has leadership characteristics, but the figure jumped to 20.4% after May 16.
