CITIZENS of Slovakia now trust the European Union less, according to a recent Eurobarometer survey which found that this particular indicator had fallen by 10 percent over the past year. The percentage of Slovaks who believe that membership in the EU has been beneficial for the country also fell by 6 percentage points, the TASR newswire reported.
“Conversely, 22 percent of those surveyed said that EU membership has not been beneficial to Slovakia, which is rise of 4 percentage points compared to the previous period,“ said Pavol Pružinec from the European Parliament Information Centre.
“Nonetheless, confidence of Slovaks vis-a-vis the EU and the European Parliament (EP) is still among the highest in the community,” Pružinec stated, as quoted by TASR.
