A large, almost twice as large majority of Macedonian citizens believe that the current government led by SDSM and DUI, Prime Minister Dimitar Koachevski has failed to overcome the political crisis in the country, and a solid majority says that due to the current ruling set should not remain until the end of the term.
In a public opinion poll conducted by the Skopje Institute for Political Research (IPIS), the results of which were published on Sunday, respondents were asked the question “Has the formation of the new government (with Prime Minister DimitarKovachevski) overcome the political crisis in Macedonia?”.
Almost half of them, or 47.4 percent, believe that the Government has failed to deal with the crisis, while 27.9 percent of the citizens have a positive opinion. Approximately the same, i.e. 24.7 is the percentage of respondents who did not have an opinion or did not comment on this issue.
A high 39.1 percent of respondents, on the other hand, believe that early parliamentary elections are needed in the country. Opposite to them, 32.5 percent think that the current government should remain, and to the question “Do you think the SDSM-led government should remain in power until the end of its mandate in 2024 or are early parliamentary elections needed?”, about 28.4 percent of respondents refused to answer.
The Institute for Political Research from Skopje (IPIS) conducted a short telephone survey between 4 and 6 May 2022 on 1111 adult respondents in the Republic of North Macedonia. In the research, the citizens expressed their views on their support for political parties and politicians, as well as on certain current issues.
