Confidence in president, government and parliament down

The confidence of Czechs in the president, the government and both chambers of Parliament has taken a dive in the last nine months, according to polls conducted by the CVVM agency.

A June poll suggests that only 29 percent of respondents now trust the president, compared to 46 percent last September and 28 percent of people trust the government, a 15 percent drop from September.

The Chamber of Deputies has a 21 percent trust rating, the Senate enjoys the trust of 27 percent of respondents, while in a previous survey more than a third of respondents trusted them.

Meanwhile trust in mayors and municipal councils has risen significantly to around 60 percent.
