Opinion survey in favour of House dissolution but not PM's resignation

About 52 per cent said the House should be dissolved in the wake of the Tuesday’s police crackdown on protesters, Abac Poll said in a survey released on Friday.

Almost 58 per cent disagreed with the demand for the prime minister’s resignation.

The overwhelming majority of 82 per cent opposed the denial of medical services to police and government’s politicians in retaliation for the violent crowd dispersal.

About half said police should not have used tear gas to disperse the crowds.
