Politics A- A A+

Poll results released today by the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and CRRC-Georgia show that given increasing negative assessments of the prime minister, president, courts, and parliament, Mayor of Tbilisi Kakha Kaladze continues to have a net positive assessment, enjoying the highest favorability rating of political leaders, Eurasia Diary reports citing Georgia Today.

13% of the NDI respondents evaluate Kaladze's job performance as “very good”, 31% as “good”, 32% as “average”, 16% as “bad” and 6% as “very bad.”

The same survey shows that 4% of the NDI respondents evaluate the job performance of Georgia’s Prime Minister Giorgi Gakharia as “very good”, 17% as “good”, 34% as “average”, 24% as “bad” and 10% as “very bad”, while 10% chose not to answer.

The poll shows that President Salome Zurabishvili is the most disliked leader of the country. 1% of the interviewed respondents evaluate her work as “very good”, 8% as “good”, 31% as “average”, 34% as “bad”, 20% as “very bad”, and 6% chose not to answer.

The results reflect data collected from November 19- December 13, 2019, through face-to-face interviews with a nationwide representative sample of Georgia’s adult population, excluding occupied territories, that included 2,180 completed interviews.

NDI’s survey work is funded by UK Aid. The poll was carried out by CRRC Georgia.

NDI is an independent, nonprofit, nonpartisan organization working to support and strengthen democratic institutions worldwide through citizen participation, openness and accountability in government.
