Prague, Oct 14 (CTK) – A majority of Czech citizens trust the military (65 percent), the police (60 percent) and courts (52 percent), and trade unions have become more popular as trust in them increased from 40 to 47 percent over the past five months, according to a CVVM institute’s poll released on Friday.

People consider churches the least credible, with 22 percent saying they trust them and 69 percent saying they do not.

Media continue to be rather unpopular in the country and their credibility further decreased: 44 percent of Czechs trust the radio, 34 percent trust the television and 33 percent trust the press. Their ratings are approximately 15 percentage points lower than they were two years ago.

Forty-one percent said they trusted the Internet, while 46 percent said they did not. The poll showed that even the youngest generation started losing confidence in the Internet, CVVM writes.

People are equally divided in their (mis)trust in banks, with 47 percent showing confidence in them and 48 percent expressing the opposite view.

Forty-eight percent had a negative opinion of nongovernmental organisations, while 40 percent said they trusted NGOs.

The poll was conducted on 999 respondents aged over 15 years in September.
