Penn Schoen Berland has conducted the survey in Georgia. The survey was conducted across Georgia on July 2-15, and was attended by 1980 respondents who intend to participate in the upcoming parliamentary election in October 2012, the IA Regnum reported.


According research results, released on the website of the European Platform for Democracy in Georgia (EPDIG), the coalition "Georgian Dream" was supported by 42% of respondents, while only 41% spoke for the ruling party "United National Movement".

"Georgian Dream" is ahead of the "United National Movement" in Tbilisi (48% vs. 34%) and among respondents aged 55 years (44% vs. 36%).

At the same time, 47% of respondents compared with 43% believe that Georgia is developing in the right direction; according to 49% vs. 40% believe the economy of the country is developing properly.

60% of respondents approve the work of President Mikheil Saakashvili, 61% of the respondents positively assess the work of the Georgian government, but 58% believe that Georgia needs major changes.

Recall, according to the survey by the National Democratic Institute (NDI), 36% of respondents would vote for the ruling party "United National Movement" in the parliamentary election, whereas only 18% would vote for the "Georgian Dream".

"Our position has not changed; we do not trust the NDI surveys, as well as the researches of other organizations. We are not familiar with the methodology of research, how the field work was conducted, we do not know who's funding these studies", Maia Panjikidze said.

Furthermore, as demonstrated by the NDI studies, 33 % of citizens support the appointment of the current head of Georgia Mikheil Saakashvili to the post of prime minister after his presidential term in 2013.
