After the Cabinet reshuffle, which involved 16 ministerial posts, an opinion poll was conducted by Suan Dusit Rajabhat University among 2,507 people from Jan 18-21 on the issue.

The poll showed 37.50 percent of respondents hoped that the cabinet’s reshuffle would improve the government’s work efficiency while 22.32 percent said they will wait and see the performance of newcomers for a while.

Meanwhile, 80.13 percent of poll respondents were satisfied with shifting defence minister Gen Yutthasak Sasiprapa to become deputy prime minister, followed by 78.65 per cent for the new post of Kittiratt Na Ranong as deputy prime minister and finance minister concurrently, with ACM Sukampol Suwannathat swapping his post from transport minister to replace Gen Yutthasak as defence minister.

Regarding advantages of the first reshuffle of Ms Yingluck Shinawatra administration, 47.31 percent said it would give a chance to competent newcomers to come work for the government and 40.86 percent said it will help improve the government’s performance.

On the other hand, touching on the disadvantages, 46.98 percent said the cabinet reshuffle may disrupt ministry work, as new ministers may need time to study their new roles and get up to speed, while 28.91 percent believed it was used for political payback and favours.

His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej on Jan 18 endorsed the cabinet reshuffle proposed by Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra involving 16 ministerial posts–10 newcomers and six swapped positions.
