After looking at Luxembourg citizens’ , and their knowledge of the current Luxembourg , participants of the survey were asked to rate political figures.
Politicians were rated on their likeability and competence. Lenert, who is at the forefront of the covid crisis management, with a rating of 86 out of 100, sat at the first spot of the chart, which combined a politician’s friendliness and competence. The 1,016 participants of the survey gave foreign affairs minister Jean Asselborn (LSAP) the second place, with a mark of 77. Prime minister Xavier Bettel completed the top 3 with a rate of 71/100. This podium remains unchanged from the previous survey.
From the opposition, Sven Clement from the Pirate party ranked highest, with a grade of 59/100.
General loss of popularity
The results of the survey revealed a downward trend as many of the politicians scored less points since the last survey results from June 2021.
Bettel, who in recent news had been criticised , for instance, lost 8 points. However, he remained the most well-known politician among the general public, including the 18-24 year olds. His party co-member economy minister Pierre Gramegna (DP) lost 5 points on the skill/friendliness chart and environment minister Carole Dieschbourg (déi Gréng) lost 8.
Only the opposition party Pirate Partéi saw its grades in terms of likeability and competence go up.
