Macedonian citizens have the greatest confidence in VMRO-DPMNE’s party leader Hristijan Mickoski, according to a poll conducted by the Institute for Political Research in Skopje (IPIS).
The poll, conducted by telephone between 19 and 22 October 2021 on 1,102 adult respondents in the Republic of Macedonia, shows that 19.3 % of the respondents trust Mickoski, and only 15.6% trust current Prime Minister Zoran Zaev. In third place is the leader of Levica Dimitar Apasiev.
In order to observe the relevance and impartiality of the research, an impartial and objective questionnaire was created on the basis of which the poll was later conducted. The research was conducted using a random sample that was stratified to preserve the representativeness of the population in the Republic of Macedonia. It observed the demographic specifics of the population such as gender structure, age groups, level of education and ethnicity, with appropriate division of respondents by place of residence and constituency, with Skopje being taken as a separate entity because of its characteristics.
