Almost two thirds of respondents in Macedonia believe that the Government of Prime Minister Zoran Zaev led by his SDSM is poorly coping with the COVID-19 pandemic, show the results of a poll conducted by the Institute for Civic Activism and Independence, conducted between 13th and 17th September.
The results of the poll showed that as many as 72.1 percent of respondents estimate that the current government is mismanaging the Covid-19 pandemic. On the other hand, only 16.9 percent answered “Yes” to the question Is the Government of the Republic of North Macedonia dealing properly with the coronavirus pandemic?”. 11% of the respondents did not know or did not have an answer to this question.
The results of this question were obtained from a representative sample of 1,156 respondents throughout the country conducted in the same period of the survey, with a margin of statistical error of plus-minus 2 percent.
