* Poland’s most trusted leaders.
** Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and President Andrzej Duda are the most trusted politicians in Poland. Beata Szydlo was not far behind in third place.
According to the latest survey by pollster IBRiS, both Morawiecki and Duda enjoy the trust of 46.7 percent of respondents.
The confidence rating for Morawiecki rose by 18 percent in January compared to the previous month.
The two top politicians are followed in the confidence survey by Deputy Prime Minister Beata Szydło, with 40.9 percent, and Justice Minister Zbigniew Ziobro, with 34.4 percent.
Jarosław Kaczyński, the leader of the ruling Law and Justice party, enjoys the trust of 34.2 percent of Poles.
Defence Minister Antoni Macierewicz tops the list of politicians with the lowest confidence rating: 67.2 percent of Poles say they do not trust him.
*** This does not surprise us regarding new PM Morawiecki. He is a strong and natural leader who has commanded instant respect in Europe without sacrificing his values.
The V4 Report believes Morawiecki, Viktor Orban and Sebastian Kurz (non-V4) stand above the crowd and will be the main forces in Central Europe. While each is unique in personality and style, all three are comfortable with who they are and posses the confidence, strength and vision to strengthen the region and Europe.
Many doubted Sebastian Kurz, but despite the vicious attacks from the media, he did not hesitate to join forces with the Freedom Party. Kurz has been solid so far and has not backed-down from his views on migration.
Some EU/German “think tanks” and periodicals will try to create artificial divisions in Central Europe. Ignore the noise. While they will certainly not agree on every single issue, we believe they will work well together regarding the key issues that matter. The first test could be this June in the Battle with Brussels and the Western Bloc over mandatory migrant quotas.
We are very optimistic about the future of Central Europe and Visegrad. We believe strong leadership will attract others in the region to the cause.
