A large majority of people agree with a proposal for agencies responsible for the management of water resources to be merged into a national water resources management office for better efficiency in solving problems of flooding and drought, according to the result of a survey by National Institute of Development Administration (Nida Poll).
Under the proposal, the prime minister would exercise his power under Section 44 of the 2014 interim charter to set up the national office for management of water resources.
The survey to compile the people's opinions on this matter was carried out on Aug 31-Sept 1 on 1,250 people of various levels of education and occupations throughout the country.
