Bangkok, the 1st of July 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Tentatively titled “Six Days, 63 Million Opinions” the campaign will run until the 6th of July (Six Days) and include opinions from all regions of Thailand’s estimated 63 million population.

Premier Abhisit revealed that the project was established to gather the “people’s” opinions on what the government should be doing to resolve various social, political and economical divides in the national reform “road map.” It has been revealed that further activities/campaigns are in the preliminary approval stage, scheduled for September/October of this year.

In somewhat of a publicity stunt for the commencement of the campaign, Prime Minister Abhisit himself answered three phone calls, before a technical error temporarily suspended the service due to a flood of incoming calls.

The new campaign is just another step in the governments nation reform “road map” aimed at addressing the issues brought up by the recent 2-month long political protests in the nation’s capital. The “Red Shirt” campaign expressed dissatisfaction with the so-called double standards being practiced by the government, social inequalities, a widening income gap, corruption at the highest levels and an illegitimate/unelected government.

People wishing to express their opinions regarding a resolution to the current situation can do so by contacting the “6 Days, 63 Million Opinions” hotline on; 02-304-9999 (free of charge) or via email at the www.pm.go.th/forward website.

It is expected that the accumulated opinions and subsequent results will be presented to the public on the 1st of January 2011 as a New Years gift and “Blueprint for Thailand Reform.”
