Poll: trust in president at beginning of month was higher than 50 percent

A new poll released by the CVVM agency suggests that at the beginning of June trust in the country’s president, Miloš Zeman, was above 50 percent, while mayors and local town hall representatives enjoyed almost 60 percent. Trust in the country’s then-prime minister Petr Nečas stood at just 18 – before a corruption and spying scandal erupted, within days leading to the fall of his government. Just 14 percent of those queried expressed trust in the Chamber of Deputies, and 22 percent in the Senate.
