Vast majority of the EU citizens are in favour of building the new European satellite navigation system, which is set to compete with American GPS – says the recent Eurobarometer poll.
25 thousand Europeans were asked, if they would support the construction of Galileo, knowing that it would cost €2.4 billion, an amount that would allow building 400 kilometres of motorways.
63% of the EU citizens said “Yes”, in Poland it was 66%. In Sweden support for this initiative is the smallest, with 33% believing EU should not spend that much on the satellite investment.
So far the Galileo project encounters one obstacle after another. In recent months it turned out that the private companies, that were supposed to be main investors for constructing and sending satellites to the orbit, are not able to collect sufficent funds. Therefore Brussels considers engaging EU budget. During the next few months EU transport ministers will be discussing the future of the project.

According to the newest CBOS poll, Jaroslaw Kaczynski’s government has the lowest support since its forming. Number of its opponents is record high.
Kaczynski’s predecessors: Kazimierz Marcinkiewicz and Marek Belka had never had such bad poll results. Even Leszek Miller [whose government collapsed under corruption scandals], got to such number of opponents after two whole years in power.
Lech Kaczynski’s results also hit record low. The number of citizens satisfied with his presidency is the lowest since election, whereas over half of the people (58%) are dissatisfied with him. Moreover, one third of those who voted for him, now find themselves in the group of dissatisfied.
A decline in support is also reflected in the party poll of 9-11 March. Opposistion Citizens Platform (PO) gained 6 percent and now has the support of 36%, whereas the governing Law and Justice (PiS) are 12% behind with 24%.
