Munich’s population is very satisfied with the its Mayor Dieter Reiter (SPD) and his and the City Hall’s politics, as the results of a new (October) survey show. The survey was carried out by the Munich Institute for Market Research (mifm) in collaboration with RIM Martkforschung GmbH, on behalf of the Press and Information Office.
The results show that 87 per cent of Munichers find the Mayor likeable, only about 12 per cent find the opposite. These results are even better than the April result, which means that the people are also satisfied with the way the Mayor handles the refugee crisis, as this was the most discussed issue of city life over the past few months.
70.5 per cent are satisfied with the politics of the Mayor, not only are 90 per cent of the supporters of his party are satisfied, but also a vast majority of the CSU supporters (83 per cent) are satisfied. Munich residents are also with public transport (80 per cent), environmental politics (67) and schools (62.8). On the other hand, only one third are satisfied with the development of housing.
