Among all the institutions in the country that enjoy the most trust among Albanians are the religious ones followed by the armed forces, the state police, educational institutions and finally the health system.
This ranking was drawn up after a survey "Trust in governance 2019", conducted on a sample of 2500 people.
The survey conducted byUNDP and by 'Institute for Democracy and the Media between November and December 2019, it shows that the level of trust in the judiciary (judicial and court proceedings) has increased in recent years, although these institutions are perceived as less reliable.
The 2019 survey results show that the most trusted institutions are religious institutions (65,6%), followed by the armed forces (59,4%), the state police (54,6%), the educational institutions (57,3%) and the health system (51,4%).
The survey shows a decline in civic perception of transparency and accountability practices at both central and local levels. In particular, in 2016 and 2019, the drop in perceptions about transparency is 6 percentage points for the central government (33% in 2019) and 7 percentage points for the local government (36% in 2019).
The Supreme State Control (Kontrolli i Larte i Shtetit) is the institution with the highest score regarding the efficiency of the control of government activities. Over the past two years, this assessment has remained virtually unchanged for the media, Parliament and civil society organizations, followed by the Commissioner for Defense against Discrimination, Trade Unions and Businesses.
While the role in demanding transparency towards the government from the People's Lawyer and opposition parties has decreased in the 2016-2019 period.
The data show that most Albanian citizens perceive low level corruption (87,5%) and high level corruption (85,2%) as widespread or widespread phenomena in Albanian society.
As for the provision of public services in general, such as primary services (health, education, water supply, cleaning, etc.) and administrative services (in the field of property, social security, business, etc.) less than half considers the situation satisfactory.
In terms of gender inclusion, most citizens (76,5%) say that women are as capable as men in holding public office. Data show that 6 out of 10 Albanians believe that the increase in the number of women on city councils has a positive impact on local government.
