Armenians’ trust level in President plummets, that in army soars

PanARMENIAN.Net - The Caucasus Barometer (CB) of the Caucasus Research Resource Centers (CRRC) on Monday, September 12 published data suggesting the level of trust in most political institutions has declined in Armenia since 2011.

Caucasus Barometer is the annual household survey about social economic issues and political attitudes conducted by CRRC. The Center, in turn, seeks to strengthen social science research and public policy analysis in the South Caucasus.

The largest decline can be observed in respect to the President. Trust dropped from 36% in 2011 to 16% in 2015. Trust in executive government and parliament also declined between 2011 and 2013, and has stabilized since at a rather low level, the survey said.

The results also show a slight decline in trust in courts between 2011 and 2015. Trust in the police, educational system and healthcare system remained largely unchanged, while trust in the army increased, up from 66% in 2011 to 78% in 2015.
