Dissatisfaction with the state of democracy in Lithuania is most often found among members of the most numerous ethnic minorities, Polish and Russian – so reveals a poll conducted by the Baltijos tyrimai company commissioned by the ELTA news agency.

The poll, which was conducted from 11th to 21st October this year, found that over half of residents of Lithuania (54%) were not satisfied with the state of democracy in this country.

More specifically, those who are more likely to complain about the level of democracy are people over 50 years of age, countryside residents, people with secondary education as well as low income people (up to 1500 LTL a month), pensioners, blue collar workers, and members of the Russian and Polish minorities.

Those who are less likely to complain about the level of democracy are people younger than 30, big city dwellers, people with higher education, high income residents (above 2500 LTL a month), and right-wingers.

The state of democracy was deemed satisfactory by 36% of the respondents. Sociologists agree that there has been no major change of opinion in this regard since the previous year.
