The Kurdish Globe - - NATIONAL -

At least 2, 461 peo­ple have par­tic­i­pated in an opin­ion poll which launched by Kur­dis­tan In­sti­tu­tion for Po­lit­i­cal Af­fairs. The poll con­tained dif­fer­ent ques­tions to eval­u­ate the per­for­mance of the Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Govern­ment (KRG) and the Iraqi in­sti­tu­tions.

The par­tic­i­pants took part across the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion’s cities. They were from dif­fer­ent so­cial class mod­els.

The re­sult of the poll shows that around 70 per­cent of the Kur­dish peo­ple have no con­fi­dence in the Iraqi fed­eral govern­ment.

At least 77 per­cent of the vot­ers said that they have con­fi­dence in Kur­dis­tan Pres­i­dent Mas­soud Barzani.

Mean­while, around 74 per­cent of the par­tic­i­pants voted that they have con­fi­dence in Iraq’s Pres­i­dent Jalal Tal­a­bani.

The fig­ures show that 80 per­cent of the peo­ple voted for the ques­tion that they trust the KRG.

Re­sults of the poll demon­strate that around 70 per­cent of the vot­ers trust the Kur­dish po­lit­i­cal par­ties and Kur­dis­tan Par­lia­ment. How­ever, 88 per­cent of the peo­ple voted for the ex­cel­lent per­for­mance of the po­lice and se­cu­rity forces.

In a crit­i­cal ques­tion re­gard­ing the per­for­mance of the KRG’s court, around 27 per­cent of the peo­ple said they have no con­fi­dence in the KRG’s courts.

In the mean­time, 70 per­cent of the peo­ple took part in the poll said that they don’t trust the Iraqi fed­eral govern­ment.

Fig­ures show that around 94 per­cent of the par­tic­i­pants voted for the ques­tions that they proud of their Kur­dis­tani iden­tity but only about 50 per­cent of them said they are ready to fight to de­fend Kur­dis­tan if a for­eign coun­try at­tack it.

More than 80 per­cent of the vot­ers be­lieved that the rul­ing sys­tem in Kur­dis­tan is a demo­cratic one, and most of them were op­ti­mists that over the next four years the demo­cratic process in the re­gion will fur­ther de­velop.

The re­sult of the poll shows that 58 per­cent of the peo­ple voted they do not have con­vic­tion in the Iraqi par­lia­ment but only about 65 per­cent said they do not trust the Iraqi army.

Most of the par­tic­i­pants sup­posed that the KRG was rel­a­tively suc­ceeded in im­prov­ing the ed­u­ca­tion, health­care, drink­ing wa­ter, so­cial jus­tice, elec­tric­ity and re­solv­ing fuel cri­sis cases.

In ad­di­tion, most of the vot­ers be­lieved that the per­for­mance of the KRG was very poor in re­solv­ing the is­sues of un­em­ploy­ment, cor­rup­tion and hous­ing.

Around 56 per­cent of the par­tic­i­pants also said that the dis­putes be­tween the KRG and fed­eral govern­ment have had neg­a­tive im­pact on their fi­nan­cial con­di­tions.
