ECONOMYNEXT – An approval rating of Sri Lanka’s government has fallen to 3 percent in June 2022 from 10 percent in January, and economic confidence was a negative 96, according to a poll conducted by Verité Research, a Colombo based think tank.

The approval rating was assessed by asking the question “Do you approve or disapprove of the way the current government is working?”

Economic confidence was assessed by a set of multiple choice questions.

The score can range from negative (-) 100 to positive (+) 100. A score above zero means more people see the economic conditions positively rather than negatively.

No one rated the economic condition as excellent. 1.8% rated it as good; and 1.3% rated it as getting better. This rating was (-) 83 in January 2022.

To the question, “In general, are you satisfied or dissatisfied with the way things are going in Sri Lanka?” only 2% said they were satisfied down from 6 percent in January 2022-07-0. (Colombo/July01/2022)
