Political Quarter: Results of 2020
The expert survey «Political Quarter: Results of 2020» was conducted by the Ilko Kucheriv Democratic Initiatives Foundation on 15-19 December 2020. 57 experts were interviewed during the survey.
Evaluations of the effectiveness of President Zelensky’s activities provided by experts remain low. Communication with the public was rated the highest, but assessed below average with only 2.5 points out of 5 possible. Experts assessed foreign policy and conflict resolution in Donbass at 2.2 points. Even lower scores were given to the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic – 2 points, and to the initiation of the necessary reforms – 1.8 points. The issue of personnel appointments was a complete failure for the President – 1.4 points.
The annual dynamics of President Zelensky’s performance assessments are primarily stable. Compared to the first and second quarters, there has been a significant reduction in the effectiveness of the fight against the epidemic, but other indicators have not changed significantly.
