Nearly one in two Greeks do not trust the coun­try’s po­lit­i­cal sys­tem and the majority are not sat­is­fied with their liv­ing con­di­tions or jobs, ac­cord­ing to a new survey whose re­sults were re­leased by the Hel­lenic Sta­tis­ti­cal Au­thor­ity (ELSTAT) yes­ter­day.

The survey, which was con­ducted on 7,349 house­holds dur­ing the course of 2013, found that 45 per­cent of Greeks do not trust the po­lit­i­cal sys­tem while 19.2 per­cent have no faith in the coun­try’s ju­di­ciary and 12.5 per­cent said they mis­trust the po­lice force.

Only 5.1 per­cent of re­spon­dents said they were sat­is­fied with their lives in gen­eral and just 5 per­cent of em­ployed Greeks said they were happy with their jobs.
