Austria-poll: Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurtz takes the top spot after New Zealand’s prime minister over crisis

Ο ομοσπονδιακός καγκελάριος της Αυστρίας Σεμπάστιαν Κουρτς παίρνει τον δεύτερο καλύτερο βαθμό, μετά την πρωθυπουργό της Νέας Ζηλανδίας Τζασίντα Αρντέρν, ως προς την αντιμετώπιση της κρίσης της πανδημίας του κορονοϊού, διαπιστώνει δημοσκόπηση που διενεργήθηκε σε έξι ευρωπαϊκές χώρες και στη Νέα Ζηλανδία.

Στη δημοσκόπηση αυτή, τα αποτελέσματα της οποίας μετέδωσε η δημόσια Αυστριακή Ραδιοτηλεόραση (ÖRF), οι ερωτηθέντες σε Αυστρία, Βρετανία, Γαλλία, Γερμανία, Ιταλία, Σουηδία και Νέα Ζηλανδία αξιολόγησαν μόνον τη δική τους κυβέρνηση.

Πιο ικανοποιημένοι δήλωσαν οι πολίτες στη Νέα Ζηλανδία, στην Αυστρία και στη Γερμανία.

Σε μια κλίμακα από το 0 έως το 10, η πρωθυπουργός της Νέας Ζηλανδίας Αρντέρν βαθμολογήθηκε με βαθμό 7,8, ο αυστριακός καγκελάριος Κουρτς με 6,8 και η καγκελάριος της Γερμανίας Αγγέλα Μέρκελ με 6,0.

Στις χώρες που πλήττονται περισσότερο από την πανδημία του κορονοϊού, οι κυβερνήσεις δέχτηκαν πολύ περισσότερες επικρίσεις για τα μέτρα: οι Ιταλοί, οι Βρετανοί και οι Γάλλοι έδωσαν έτσι τους χειρότερους βαθμούς στις πολιτικές ηγεσίες τους.

Χειρότερα απ’ όλους βαθμολογείται στην δημοσκόπηση αυτή από τους πολίτες της χώρας του ο πρόεδρος της Γαλλίας Εμανουέλ Μακρόν (με μόλις 4,1) ενώ λίγο καλύτερα αξιολογήθηκαν ο πρωθυπουργός της Σουηδίας Στέφαν Λεβέν (5,2), ο πρωθυπουργός της Ιταλίας Τζουζέπε Κόντε (5,5) και ο πρωθυπουργός της Βρετανίας Μπόρις Τζόνσον (5,6).

Γαλλία-δημοσκόπηση: Μόλις το 20% των Γάλλων θεωρεί ότι η Μαρίν Λεπέν θα χειριζόταν καλύτερα την κρίση από τον Εμανουέλ Μακρόν

Μόλις το ένα πέμπτο των πολιτών της Γαλλίας θεωρεί ότι η Μαρίν Λεπέν, η αρχηγός της άκρας δεξιάς, θα χειριζόταν καλύτερα από τον πρόεδρο της χώρας Εμανουέλ Μακρόν την κρίση της πανδημίας του κορονοϊού, καταγράφει δημοσκόπηση του ινστιτούτου IFOP που δημοσιεύει στο σημερινό της φύλλο η εφημερίδα Le Journal du Dimanche.

Macron’s government has come under fire for its controversial messages, especially when and where citizens should wear protective masks, because it has failed to provide adequate stockpile of personal protective equipment before the crisis erupts, but also because far fewer diagnoses are made. examinations than in neighboring Germany.

In particular, Marin Lepen has repeatedly accused the government of lying to Macron’s ministers about “everything.”

However, the leader of the far right fails to convince the majority of French people that she would do better than the current president. On the other hand, 41% of respondents believe that it would be worse. 39% think it would be neither better nor worse, according to IFOP findings.

For most French people, there is no public figure among them who has been asked questions about how to handle the crisis better. A 35% estimate that right-wing former President Nicolas Sarkozy would do better, 15% believe that radical leftist leader Jean-Luc Melanchon would do better, while only 8% believe that Socialist former President François Hollande will he did better.

Still, confidence in Macron’s government remains low. Only 39% of the sample said they trusted the centrist president’s government and believed they would handle the crisis effectively, almost unchanged from what was recorded a week ago, but dramatically reduced compared to what was recorded in March (55). %).

The poll came after Prime Minister Edouard Philippe unveiled a plan to ease restrictions imposed on France on March 17, starting on May 11.

The IFOP Institute’s survey of JDD was conducted on April 29 and 30 using the questionnaire completion method, with a representative sample of 1,019 persons aged 18 and over selected by the percentage method.
