Prague, Dec 5 (CTK) – Trust in Czech President Milos Zeman fell to 48 percent in November, which was the lowest figure during the past year, according to a poll conducted by the CVVM institute in mid-November and released yesterday.
The 8 percent slump may be caused by the scandal with state decorations on the October 28 national holiday.
Zeman’s critics say he deleted Jiri Brady, a Holocaust survivor, from the list of personalities to be awarded on October 28 for political reasons, because Brady’s relative, Culture Minister Daniel Herman (Christian Democrats, KDU-CSL), had an official meeting with the Tibetan Dalai Lama in Prague, although Zeman called on him to cancel it.
Zeman denied the allegations.
The mistrust of Zeman rose to 49 percent.
The poll ratings of the coalition government of the Social Democrats (CSSD), ANO and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) , headed by Bohuslav Sobotka (CSSD), decreased by 3 percent to the current 35 percent compared with October.
The government is mistrusted by 62 percent of Czechs.
The Chamber of Deputies is the least trustworthy institution with 69 percent of negative answers.
As before, mayors are most trusted with 65 percent of people, followed by town hall members with 62 percent. Trust in both of them rose as against October.
The trust in regional assemblies surged from 38 to 44 percent.
The poll ratings of regional governors rose to 39 percent from 34 percent in October.
