Albanians' trust in political parties and the president is falling, religions are dominating, according to poll
 
 The Institute for Democracy and Mediation (IDM) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) presented the findings of the “Trust in Governance 2019” survey. According to the study, almost one in two Albanians want to leave Albania. Albanians with high incomes, university education, women and the unemployed are more likely to leave the country.

For 2019, most Albanians believed more in international organizations such as NATO, the EU and the UN than in their country's institutions. Religious institutions are ranked with the highest trust than those of public education, health institutions, police, prosecution or courts. The State Police, the media, the President and the political parties have lost credibility.

Governance in the country, both at the central and local levels, has shown a decline in the level of transparency perceived in the last four years.

The findings show that the public institutions that enjoy the most trust are: religious institutions (65.6%) followed by the Armed Forces (59.4%). Albanians show less trust in the Prosecution (27.4%), the President (27.6%), and the courts (27.1). %). While political parties have the lowest level of this trust with only (22.5%). In contrast to the country's institutions, international organizations such as NATO (78%), the EU (73%), and the UN (75%) are ranked as the most trusted institutions.

Justice reforms

About 1 in 2 Albanians, or 52.7%, believe that justice reform will have a positive impact on the country's development. However, about 48.5% believe that reform is not being implemented correctly. The younger generation under the age of 30 seems more skeptical, as according to them the reform is being done only just to say, and that the process is selective.

For the third year in a row, Albanians view the general prosecutor's office and the courts as less independent institutions.

60.5% of Albanians believe that the agenda of the courts is influenced more or less by political interests, while 59% of Albanians consider the Prosecution to be extremely influenced by political interests.

Survey data also showed Albanians are skeptical about punishing corruption cases. Regarding corruption in public institutions, most Albanians see about 85.2% as a widespread phenomenon in society. 7 out of 10 respondents do not trust the prosecution of high-level corruption cases. 41% of respondents said they paid bribes. Regarding the provision of public services, 50.8% said they were dissatisfied. 71% of Albanians have not seen an improvement in the quality of social services provided by their municipalities. The survey data collection was conducted during the period November-December 2019 and included a total of 2500 citizens in 61 municipalities of the country.

The findings show that the public institutions that enjoy the most trust are:

- Religious Institutions (65.6%)
- The Armed Forces (59.4%)
- Public Education Institutions (57.3%)
- State Police (54.6%)
- Civil society organizations (56.3%)
- Public Health Institutions (51.4%)
- Parliament (28.4%)
- President (27.6%)
- Courts (27.1%)
