Survey shows lack of trust in Greek government and Parliament

The latest Eurobarometer survey carried out for the European Commission has found that 90 percent of Greeks tend not to trust their government.

The poll, which was based on a sample of 1,000 interviewees, found that Greeks are equally distrusting of their Parliament, with 89 percent saying they tended not to trust MPs.

Faith in the European Union was slightly higher, with 19 percent of Greeks saying they tended to trust the Brussels- and Strasbourg-based institution. The survey found that disappointment about the current state of the Greek economy continues, with 98 percent of Greeks describing it as “bad.”

However, there are signs that pessimism about the economy’s future are easing slightly.

The poll found that 62 percent of Greeks expect the situation to worsen, which is 14 percent less than in the previous Eurobarometer in the fall of 2012.
