The Lithuanians continue to have the highest level of trust in firefighters, according to the latest Vilmorus survey for the Lietuvos Rytas daily, published on Saturday.
It shows that firefighters lead in terms of public trust with a rating of 91.9 percent, up from 89.3 percent in September.
“Only 0.6 percent of respondents have negative opinions, which is the lowest share, six people out of a thousand, it’s hard to even imagine that this could be the case,” Vladas Gaidys, head of Vilmorus, told BNS.
Firefighters are followed by the police in the second place with 64.2 percent (up from 61.7 percent in September) and the army with 63.8 percent (up from 63.4 percent).
The social insurance fund SoDra comes next with 53.2 percent (54.9 percent in September), followed by border guards with 46.7 percent (50.1 percent), the presidential office with 45.2 percent (41.1 percent), and the education system with 40.7 percent (41.7 percent).
On the other end of the spectrum, people traditionally have the lowest level of trust in political parties (6.1 percent), and 53.3 percent do not trust them.
Only 10.7 percent have trust in the Seimas, compared to 53.4 percent having no trust in it. Also, 17.5 percent trust the government, and 41.6 percent do not.
Vilmorus polled 1,001 Lithuanian residents between October 12 and 21. The results of the poll have an error margin of up to 3.1 percent.
