Citizens in Kosovo are unhappy with the performance of the executive, legislative and judiciary institutions. Only 20% of the citizens are happy with the work of parliament and performance of the speaker of parliament, Kadri Veseli.
Meanwhile, 30% of the citizens are happy with the work of the president of Kosovo, Atifete Jahjaga and 15% are happy with the performance of PM Isa Mustafa.
These are some of the results of the project “Public Pulse”, conducted by UNDP and USAID in Kosovo during September 2015.
Permanent representative of UNDP to Kosovo, Andrew Russel said that he’s surprised about the fact that corruption has been listed as the third most problematic thing in Kosovo.
“Unemployment has been listed as the biggest problem, poverty ranks second, corruption a little lower on the list, on the third place. However, I’m surprised that it’s relatively low in terms of percentage and perception”, Russell said.
Meanwhile, the head of USAID to Kosovo, James Hope said that these data reflect the opinion of the citizens of Kosovo.
Based on the results of this opinion poll, unemployment, poverty and corruption seem to be the biggest problems that Kosovo faces.
Meanwhile, as far as the public’s perception on the creation of the Special Tribunal is concerned, around 50% of the citizens believe that this tribunal will bring justice for the serious crimes that were committed in the ‘90s.
The results of this poll are based on the opinions of 1 thousand and 306 respondents over the age of 18 of both genders and from all the communes of Kosovo, including the north. /ibna/
