Prague - A mere two-fifths of Czechs trusted President Milos Zeman in November, according to a poll conducted by the CVVM polling agency and released today.
The biggest, almost three-fifth trust is enjoyed by mayors of towns and villages as well as local town halls.
The trust in Zeman fell to 39 percent from the October 51 percent.
"Zeman tends to be trusted by the elderly, pensioners and followers of Social Democrats (CSSD) and Communists (KSCM)," the pollsters said.
Zeman enjoyed the biggest trust at the beginning of his term in April when it was voiced by 61 percent of respondents.
Despite the fall, the presidential office was the third most trusted constitutional institution in the Czech Republic. It was preceded by the mayors with 59 percent and town halls with 58 percent, both of which recorded a two-percent increase in trust over October.
The trust in regional assemblies rose by 2 percent, too, to 38 percent.
The trust in regional governors fell by 1 percent to 36 percent.
The Senate still enjoyed the trust of 26 percent of Czechs, the government of 24 percent, down 2 percent since October.
The Chamber of Deputies was the least trusted constitutional institution with 15 percent.
Seven percent of Czechs were satisfied with the political situation in the Czech Republic in November, up from 5 percent in October.
Dissatisfaction was voiced by 67 percent of respondents, 6 percent less than a month ago.
