More Bulgarians are pro EU

The National Centre for the Study of Public Opinion in Bulgaria has announced findings from an opinion poll conducted in the last week of January and the first week of February this year. The results show that euro scepticism has dropped and 77% of Bulgarians approve of the country's accession to the EU.

The most positive about the EU are those who are younger, well educated and have a good standard of living. Amongst those under 30, the approval rate was 81%.

Bulgarians consider that being part of the EU assists in exerting control over the country's government institutions and politicians (in which they have little faith) and 58% of respondents believed that the EU played a decisive role in resolving the recent gas crisis.
