The results were presented by a government spokesman after the weekly cabinet meeting on the day before the government was scheduled to present its one-year performance report on December 23, reports the Bangkok Post.

In detail, the survey, for which 2,700 people nationwide were questioned between November 27 and December 4, found that 98.9 per cent of respondents said they were confident in the government’s efforts to solve the country’s problems while 99.3 per cent said they were satisfied with the government’s overall performance.

A whopping 99.9 per cent gave thumbs up to the government’s efforts to control lottery ticket prices at 80 baht, a move that proved very popular since buying lottery tickets is an important part of Thais’ financial planning for the future.

A surprising 99.9 per cent were also satisfied with the government’s welfare management.

On December 25 Prime Minister General Prayut Chan-ocha will deliver a summary of the government’s achievements during its first year in office on state television. This will also include the presentation of a 20-year national strategy blueprint for political and economic reforms.

All ministers will also go on television to outline their achievements between December 23 and January 13, starting with the defense minister and ending with the industry minister.

Meanwhile, General Prayut published a second song he composed as a “personal New Year present for the public” after a first tune, written a month after his military took power, which was called “Returning Happiness to the People” and is frequently played on state media and thus topping the Thai music charts.

The new song is called “Because Your Are Thailand” and deals with his efforts, but also limitations to make Thailand happier than ever before.

“I have only two hands and breathe alone. There may not be enough power to make a dream come true,” the song goes. “But if we join hands and breathe together, the day we hope for is not far away.”
