Czechs’ trust in EU institutions is at an all-time low ahead of the upcoming 10th anniversary of the country’s accession to the European Union on May 1, the ctk news agency reports. Since trust in the EU peaked at 56 percent in the late 1990s Czechs’ satisfaction with their country’s EU membership has decreased by one third. The slide has been confirmed by several independent polling agencies. A CVVM poll which puts the trust rating at 34 percent, says that in addition to the economic crisis the slide is due to growing resentment against EU red tape and limitations enforced by EU legislation.
