Volgens peiling veel landen sceptisch over democratie

By Ninian Carter

April 11, 2024 - Voters in many countries are sceptical of democracy, a new poll of 19 nations shows – in 11 countries, fewer than half of respondents believe their most recent election was free and fair.

A new poll of 19 countries from around the world finds that in 11 nations, fewer than half of respondents believe their most recent election was free and fair – a bleak viewpoint in a year when more than half of the world’s population will be tasked with voting in elections.

The report published by the International Institute of Democracy and Electoral Assistance (IDEA) shows that voters in only 8 countries believe their most recent election was fair.

The poll also shows that only 47% of respondents in the U.S. express faith that their country has a credible electoral processes. This year is likely to see incumbent Joe Biden face off again against Donald Trump, who falsely claimed widespread voter fraud when he lost the presidency to Biden in 2020.

The survey was conducted between July 2023 and January 2024, polling about 1,500 people in each of 19 countries.
