Type: Report, working paper
Trust in Estonian central political institutions, the parliament and the political parties, is much higher among Estonian-speakers than the Russian-speakers. Trust in political parties is highly correlated with trust in parliament, indicating that harming the image of one can rapidly damage the reputation of the other. Compared to average political trust in countries included in the ESS, Estonia is placed in the middle but remains firmly ahead of other post communist countries. Roughly 40 percent of Estonian population feels close to some political party which is somewhat less than in other countries on average.
