Czechs’ trust in EU institutions slipping, but still above EU average


A Eurobarometer poll indicates that Czechs’ trust in European institutions is slipping. A similar trend is discernable across the EU and is being attributed to the impact of the global crisis. The number of Czechs who profess to trust EU institutions is now at 50 percent, down by nine percent as compared to last year. Despite the fall, the Czechs still trust EU institutions more than the EU average which is now down to a mere 42 percent.
