Government has fulfilled almost half of its election promises, thinktank says

Preliminary results of the monitoring of "fulfilled promises and complaints" by the INEKO independent economic institute show that after a year in power, the government has fulfilled almost half of its election pledges.

Of the 50 most popular promises of the government, 43 percent are considered more or less being fulfilled, while 52 percent are not. For the remaining five percent of the promises, it has not yet been possible to evaluate the situation.
