35.1% consider government successful

An MVK agency poll released on June 5 says that 35.1 percent of the public consider the current Robert Fico government to have been successful during its first year in office.

The survey, which was carried out on a sample of 1,123 respondents from May 21 to 28, showed that a further 22.5 percent think the government has not been successful, while as many as 39.2 percent think that the government's failures and successes balance each other out.

The recent survey further revealed that Prime Minister Robert Fico is considered to be the most trusted member of the government, with 65.3 percent support, ahead of Interior Minister Róbert Kaliňák with 65.1 percent, Defence Minister František Kašický (58.9 percent), Foreign Affairs Minister Ján Kubiš (52.3 percent), Deputy Premier Dušan Čaplovič (51.6 percent), and Agriculture Minister Miroslav Jureňa (38.5 percent).

The least trusted member of the Government turned out to be Justice Minister Štefan Harabin with 62.0 percent of respondents choosing him as least trustworthy, followed by Health Minister Ivan Valentovič (55.8 percent), Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Minister Viera Tomanová (41.9 percent), Education Minister Ján Mikolaj (38.1 percent), and Finance Minister Ján Počiatek (36.0 percent).
