Confidence in constitutional institutions

In April 2004, Czech citizens expressed the highest level of confidence in the president of the country. Since Václav Klaus’ entering into office, the public’s confidence has been constantly growing and this growth has now apparently paused. In recent months the president of the republic has been enjoying confidence of approximately three quarters of Czechs. In April more than a half of the citizens also expressed confidence in their local council; the regional councils are regarded as trustworthy by 39 % of the respondents.

According to our latest survey the Czech government is trusted by more than a quarter of the respondents. The Chamber of Deputies and the Senate enjoy confidence of slightly less than a fifth of the interviewees.
