Public trust in government down by ten percent month-on-month

Public trust in the centre-left government led by Bohuslav Sobotka has fallen considerably, according to a poll conducted by the TNS Aisa agency for the Czech Television. Some 36 percent of people who took part in the survey said they didn't trust the government, a drop by ten percent compared to the previous month. The authors of the survey attribute the fall in trust to a series of controverial moves by president Zeman, such as his use of vulgar language in a radio interview or his comments on the crisis in Ukraine. The poll also suggests that 76 percent of Czechs are dissatified with teh current political situation in the country.
