This stems from a poll made by the Polis agency for the SITA newswire between April 22 and 29.

The poll conducted via telephone on a sample of 1,502 respondents over 18 across Slovakia also found that Kiska has the trust of 75 percent of respondents. He was followed by the Slovak parliament with 45.9 percent and government with 45 percent, SITA wrote on May 4, citing Ján Baránek of Polis.

On the other hand, more people do not trust the Slovak government than who do trust: according to the poll, a total of 49.5 percent of those polled do not trust it. The National Council (i.e. parliament) is not trustworthy according to 48 percent of respondents, while President Kiska is not trusted by 23.4 percent of respondents.
