Caracas, 30 Ago. AVN. - The latest survey by International Consulting Services (ICS) shows that 71.5% of the population considers necessary to approve an enabling law to fight corruption.

These are the findings of the latest survey conducted by International Consulting Services (ICS) on January 11-13, which concludes that "regular citizens, workers, students, really want their 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, in a telephone interview with the Venezuelan News Agency.

The survey was conducted on August 24-25, with a sample of 1,600 telephone interviews in the states of Anzoategui, Aragua, Barinas, Bolivar, Carabobo, Distrito Capital, Falcon, Guarico, Lara, Merida, Miranda, Monagas, Nueva Esparta, Portuguesa, Sucre, Tachira, Trujillo, Vargas, Yaracuy and Zulia.

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" necessary.

"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.

Satisfied opponents

Another point highlighted by the director of polling firm was satisfaction expressed by 53.1% of respondents who said that they were opposed to the government, regarding the arrest of government officials involved in fraudulent practices.

The ICS poll shows that overall, 75.9% of respondents said to be pleased by the arrests while only 18.2% expressed dissatisfaction.
