Thai military government has managed to obtain a high public approval for its performance after taking over national administration for a month, revealed an opinion survey on June 22.

The National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) won an approval rate of 8.82 out of 10 for its one-month performance, according to the survey conducted by the Suan Dusit Poll between June 17 and 21.

Among the 1,614 respondents nationwide, 72.79 percent said the country has become peaceful and free of conflicts since the NCPO came to power.

Around 65 percent of respondents wished the NCPO remains in power until everything in the country comes back into place.

In another move, Charupong Ruangsuwan has resigned as the leader of Thailand's Pheu Thai party, the core of Yingluck Shinawatra’s cabinet overthrown by the army last month. The party's deputy leader Viroj Pao-in is serving as the acting leader.

Meanwhile, former Thai Minister of Education, a key figure of Pheu Thai, faced charges of breaking the 2007 computer crime law, defying junta’ summons and inciting unrest in the country.

If convicted, he may face up to 14 years in prison.-VNA
