In February confidence in the president, government and prime minister remained at the same level as in December, whereas the ruling centre-right party GERB lost 2% of its supporters, a poll conducted by Alpha Research agency showed.
The public sees as adequate the government's reaction to the recent floods in southeastern Bulgaria, as this is the main factor that contributes to preserving the confidence levels flat, Alpha Research said in a statement published on its website.
On the other hand, cases of police brutality and reports about big bonuses paid to senior officials and speculative drug prices caused serious damage to the image of government, the research agency added.
At the end of February, a quarter of Bulgarians said they would vote for GERB if elections were held now, the poll showed. Support for the Bulgarian Socialist Party rose slightly from 16% to 17%, the Movement for Rights and Freedoms party is backed by 5% and the Blue Coalition enjoys the confidence of 2.9%, followed by Ataka with 1.9% support.
Interior minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov remains the minister with highest approval ratings, although for the first time in February his work drew more negative than positive evaluations.
The survey was conducted between February 22 to 29 among 1,015 people.
