Kathmandu, March 26 -- A new nationwide opinion poll quantifies widespread public disillusionment with the political leadership in Kathmandu, but shows that people have formed a generally favourable impression of local governments in the past three years.

Of those polled, nearly 47% said they did not trust Prime Minister K P Oli, with the same level of distrust for Chief Ministers, MPs and federal ministers. There was even more distrust of the leaders of political parties: 60%.

When asked which was the political party most likely to work for democracy in Nepal, a full 62% said they did not know or did not want to say- an opinion that has been reflected in previous Himalmedia Public Opinion polls.
