Iceland Has Little Confidence in Central Bank

By Iceland Review

According to a new opinion poll conducted by Fréttabladid daily, 51.8 percent of participants say they have little or very little confidence in the Central Bank of Iceland, 31.8 percent have some confidence in the bank and 16.3 percent have great confidence in its work.

Those who vote the conservative Independence Party have the most confidence in the Central Bank compared to other voters, 36.8 percent of participants either rated their conference in the bank with “high” or “very high,” Fréttabladid reports.

Those who have the least confidence in the Central Bank are the voters of the Liberal Party; two thirds of these voters describe their confidence in the bank as “low” or “very low.”

About 60 percent of those who vote for the Social Democrats and the Left Greens, and of those who would not reveal which party they vote for, agree with the voters of the Liberal Party. One third of Progressive Party supporters gave the same answer.

Fréttabladid called 800 eligible voters on April 19, and 91.0 percent answered the question.
