According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s biannual release ‘Government at a Glance’, Spanish confidence in the national government has fallen 27 percentage points in the past seven years, reaching a low of 21% approval.

Spain is third to last on a list of 40 countries, with only Greece and Slovenia reported lower levels of confidence.

Only one in five Spaniards described the actions of the government as ‘correct and just’.

The report suggested that trust in government is directly correlated to factors such as strength of leadership, levels of corruption, and follow through on necessary reform.

  1. No surprise here with Rajoys’ corrupt, neo-fascist, morons in charge. You have to feel slightly sorry for the people of Spain having to live in a Police state. Although I guess they voted for them…

  2. No one understands local authority more than the locals. Small village attitudes are fine for small villages, but we all know its not good in government. unfortunately no one wants to change it. im surprised its not less than 1 in 5
