Higher public satisfaction with the HKSAR government

Higher public satisfaction with the HKSAR government

A telephone survey conducted by the Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) indicates that the public satisfaction and trust with the HKSAR government is higher than in May and last year.
Between the 18th and 27th of July, CUHK’s Hong Kong Institute of Asia-Pacific Studies conducted a telephone survey to study the popularity of the government amongst the Hong Kong public.

The survey revealed that 21.5 percent of the 702 respondents expressed satisfaction with the government, in comparison with the 17.9 percent in May. Additionally, 24.6% of respondents said they trusted the government, while only 21.0 percent responded the same way in May.

Chief Executive John Lee’s performance rating currently stands at 42.9 on average on a scale ranging from 0 to 100, with 50 as the passing mark. This is significantly higher than that in May, when he was the Chief Executive-designate and scored 39.5.

The ratings of new Chief Secretary for Administration Eric Chan Kwok-ki and Secretary for Justice Paul Lam Ting-kwok are 37.2 and 39.0 respectively, though nearly half of the respondents either refused to or were unable to provide ratings, possibly indicating that the public is not yet aware of the duo.

Lastly, 22.3 percent of respondents said that they trusted the Central government, lower than the 24.7 percent in May.

Additionally, across all categories, the increase in ratings in between the July 2022 survey and the July 2021 survey was found to be statistically significant, possibly hinting at a public that is generally more satisfied with the government, the Institute said.
