Executive Summary: As Libya proceeds through a political transition launched following 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.
By: National Democratic Institute, JMW Consulting, and Diwan Market Research
These surveys are designed to assess Libyan attitudes toward the transition, citizen confidence in political leaders and newly created institutions; and to solicit opinions on a range of issues facing the country. Diwan Market Research, a public opinion firm based in Tripoli, Libya, is conducting these surveys in collaboration with JMW Consulting. NDI is utilizing survey findings as part of a broader program to support the development of democratic and representative Libyan political parties.
The report contains findings from the second survey, conducted nationwide from September 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.
This study details Libyan citizens’ opinions on a range of topics, including: the current situation and national direction; the performance of elected institutions; awareness and perceptions of political parties; elections for a constitution-drafting body; the constitutional process and content; the status of women; and security, including attitudes toward militias.
