(NDI) and (JMW)
As Libya proceeds through its political transition, a process set in motion by the overthrow of Muammar Gaddafi in 2011,
the National Democratic Institute (NDI) and JMW Consulting are conducting a series of nationwide public opinion surveys with funding from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark.
These surveys will assess Libyan attitudes toward the transition, citizen confidence in political leaders and newly created institutions, and opinions on a range of issues facing the country.
Diwan Market Research, a public opinion firm based in Tripoli, Libya, carried out the first survey in collaboration with JMW Consulting.
NDI is incorporating survey findings in a broader program to support the development of democratic and representative Libyan political parties.
The report contains findings from the first study, conducted nationwide from May 10 to 30, 2013. These findings aggregate the results of face-to-face interviews with 1,200 Libyan respondents. Respondents were randomly selected in a probability-proportional-to-size sampling and were interviewed in all 13 governorates of Libya.
The study provides detail on Libyan citizens’ opinions on a range of topics, including: current affairs; democracy, institutions, and participation in elections; performance of elected institutions; awareness and perceptions of political parties; and gender issues.
