Only 3% satisfied with Govt – Poll


A recent poll, conducted by Verite Research, revealed that only 3 per cent of the public are satisfied with the manner in which the current Government is operating.

This was during the second round of the Gallup Style ‘Mood of the Nation’ poll that was conducted in June, to assess the approval, satisfaction and confidence of the nation in relation to the Government, the country, and the economy.

“To the question, ‘do you approve or disapprove of the way the current Government is working?’ only 3 per cent said they approve and in January 2022 this rating was at 10 per cent” Verite Research noted while stating that for the question, “In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in Sri Lanka?” only 2 per cent said they were satisfied and this rating was at 6 per cent in January 2022.

The poll was based on an islandwide nationally representative sample of responses from 1,052 Sri Lankan adults. The sample and methodology was designed to ensure a maximum error margin of under three per cent at a 95 per cent confidence interval.
