Trust in president rises to 51 percent in September

According to a survey conducted by the CVVM polling agency, public trust in president Miloš Zeman rose in September.

Some 51 percent of people who took part in the poll said they trusted the president, which is an increase of 10 percentage points compared to May.

Trust in the government has also slightly increased, unlike trust in the Senate and the Lower House of Parliament. Mayors and local councils traditionally enjoy the highest trust of citizens.
