In Hungary and Serbia, people are most satisfied with the performance of their own government. This is the result of a Central European survey conducted by the Nézőpont Institute in twelve countries.

The percentage of people satisfied with their government’s performance is 61 percent in Hungary and 60 percent in Serbia. In both countries, dissatisfaction was at 33 percent, and elections were held on April 3rd, which were won by the previous ruling party (Fidesz-KDNP/Serbian Progressive Party). According to the researchers, the fact that satisfaction is higher than the extent of electoral victories indicates that political stability is an asset, which is by no means self-evident from the examples of other countries.

In Austria, dissatisfaction was 52%, in Montenegro 54%, in the Czech Republic 59%, Croatia 66%, Poland 67%, Bulgaria 71%, and Slovenia 72%. Among the most dissatisfied countries were Romania (73%) and the region’s leader, Slovakia (74%), where only 24% of people were satisfied with the Herger government, according to the Nézőpont Institute, which collected its survey data in May and June.
