Government has kept almost half of its promises

After a year in office, the government has kept almost half of its election promises, an economic thinktank says.

The INEKO independent economic institute said the preliminary findings are based on its monitoring of "fulfilled promises and complaints", the SITA newswire reported.

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