EU Survey Shows 75% Of Citizens Support Economic Governance
BRUSSELS (MNI) – European Union citizens are in favour of
strengthening the economic rules in the 27-nation bloc, a European
Commission survey published on Thursday showed.

Three-quarters of the citizens surveyed want to increase economic

Commission said in a statement.

stronger governance occurred in Finland and Ireland – where opinion
strengthened by 13 percentage points compared to autumn 2009.

Belgium and Germany were next in line, with opinion up 7 percentage points
over the same period.

between May 5 and May 28 this year. Across the EU, 26,641 people were
