Over half of Ukrainians believe Zelensky more effective than Poroshenko – poll
More than half of Ukrainians (53%) surveyed by the Rating Group are convinced that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is more effective than the former head of state Petro Poroshenko.
At the same time, 15% of Ukrainians are of the opposite opinion, while 22% say that nothing has changed, the study said.
"Comparative evaluations of other central authorities are less optimistic. In particular, 34% of respondents believe that the current convocation of the Verkhovna Rada [Ukraine's parliament] is more effective than the previous one. Some 32% are convinced that nothing has changed, while 17% consider it less effective," the report said.
Only 27% of Ukrainians polled are sure that the current government of Oleksiy Honcharuk is more effective than that of [ex-Prime Minister] Volodymyr Groysman. Some 30% of respondents see no changes, 19% say Honcharuk's Cabinet is worse than the previous one, while 24% could not evaluate it at all.
Supporters of Petro Poroshenko's European Solidarity Party turned out to be the most critical in assessing the effectiveness of central government bodies.
The poll was conducted on November 20-24 through personal formalized (face-to-face) interviews. The study involved 2,500 respondents. Representative error is no more than 2.0%.
As UNIAN reported earlier, over two-thirds of Ukrainians, or 75%, support direct negotiations between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin to resolve the conflict in Donbas.
