jobs and lives to run smoothly in daily living," said Lorenzo Martínez,
research coordinator of ICS polling firm.
"The average citizen is seeing that the Government has launched a
fight against corruption," said the director of ICS, Lorenzo Martinez,

When asked about the need for this legislation presented by
President Nicolas Maduro, 71.5% said it is "very necessary" or "fairly
necessary", in contrast to 25.7% who said that "it is a bit" or "no"
"The average citizen is aware that (corruption) is a major
problem that must be addressed and attacked," Martinez said, noting that
65.9% of respondents agree that the National Assembly will allow Maduro
to apply the law to make progress in the fight against this scourge.
The poll also found that 58.9% of Venezuelans think that the head
of state is honest compared to 28.8% who do not believe he is honest.
Given this result, Martinez said that the President has generated confidence in the citizenry.
