Poll: Ukrainians dissatisfied with parliament's work, not disappointed in parties they voted for

15-03-2013 15:09

Ukrainians are not disappointed in the activities of the parties they voted for, but they are generally dissatisfied with the work of the Verkhovna Rada, according to a survey conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation.

While commenting at a press conference on Thursday on the results of the survey, the director of the foundation, Iryna Bekeshkina, noted that most voters (77%) are not yet disappointed in the parties that they voted for in parliamentary elections and consider their choice to be right. The voters of the Svoboda Party (93%), the Communist Party of Ukraine (86%), the UDAR Party (84%) and Batkivschyna (83%) are most of all confident their choice was right. The electors of the Party of Regions are less confident their choice was right - 69%. Only 14% of respondents are mostly happy with how the Verkhovna Rada works, and 77% are mostly or completely dissatisfied with the work of the Ukrainian parliament. As for a positive assessment of the activity of the parties elected to parliament, mostly satisfied with the work of parties are the supporters of Svoboda (89%), the Communist Party (83%) and UDAR (81%). The attitude of Ukrainians to the blocking of the Verkhovna Rada is ambiguous. According to the survey, 43% of respondents supported the blocking of parliament, because they think it's necessary for MPs to fulfill the requirements of the constitution, whereas 31% criticized the blocking of the Verkhovna Rada. Among those who backed the blocking of the Verkhovna Rada are the voters of Svoboda (80%), Batkivschyna (71%) and UDAR (64%). There are the most people among Party of Regions voters who are ready for a compromise in the work of parliament - 56%. In addition, according to the survey, most Ukrainians have a negative attitude to the fact that most deputies in the Verkhovna Rada are businessmen or people close to oligarchs. Some 20% are neutral about this, and 5% of respondents are positive about this. A nationwide poll was conducted by the Democratic Initiatives Foundation along with the Kyiv International Institute of Sociology from March 5 to March 13. The survey was conducted in 109 towns and villages in all regions in Ukraine and Crimea. A total of 2,037 respondents were interviewed. The poll's margin of error does not exceed 2.3%.
