President's trust ratings down

Latvians have come to trust the government and the parliament more, but they've become less trustful of the president throughout last year, according to an SKDS poll commissioned by the Neatkarīgā Rīta Avīze daily.

The government's trust rating was at 25% in December 2017, up from 19% in 2016. Meanwhile 73% said they mistrust it in late 2017 as opposed to 67% in 2016.

In 2016, the Saeima's trust rating was 12% while 82% mistrusted the Latvian parliament. While in December 2017, 19% of respondents said they trust the Saeima while 74% said they didn't. 

The political parties are also seen as having become more trustworthy, with 79% mistrusting it and 11% trusting it, up from 7% in 2016.

Raimonds Vējonis, however, has seen his popularity decrease steadily but still enjoys more trust among the people than the Saeima and the government.

In December 2017, 54% of respondents said they trust Raimonds Vējonis, and 34% said they don't. His 'mistrust' rating has grown 10% since he assumed the presidency in 2016.
