Egyptians’ confidence in their government was at a record low since the January 25th Revolution, according to a report released by the Gallup polling organisation.

An estimated 29% of participants had expressed confidence in former president Mohamed Morsi’s government “a few weeks” after protests demanding his ouster began. The poll number was a 28-point drop from November, when Morsi issued a presidential decree that was met with opposition by a number of political parties.

Prior to the latest report, confidence in the national government had never dropped below 57% since the revolution in 2011. The report showed 66% of respondents said they did not have confidence in the government.

Gallup’s poll showed that 73% did not support the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), while only 19% voiced support for the party. The 19% represented a 28 percentage point drop from April 2012, but higher than the 15% who supported the party in August 2011.

Faith in “honest elections” also dramatically dropped leading up to Morsi’s removal, with 34% showing “confidence in the honesty of elections” as opposed to 60% who expressed less confidence in the honesty of elections.

The poll showed 30% of respondents believed honesty of elections had improved since the removal of former president Hosni Mubarak, while 56% said it had declined, with 10% saying it had “remained the same.”

The methodology of the poll involved face-to-face interviews with 1,149 adults conducted from 12-19 June, according to Gallup, which said the sampling error was +/- 3 percentage points with 95% confidence.

    -lol, ya right. “Declined” because MB won and the elections were not rigged. They believe in elections if they actually go out and vote and their parties win. You have to actually participate if you want it to work out.

    To say it declined after Mubarak is absolutely ridiculous. The elections were rigged under Mubarak
