Two-thirds of EU citizens call for more EU competence in order to tackle crisis

On November 20, the European Parliament released results of the third survey this year related to European citizens’ views on the COVID-19 pandemic.

Survey results clearly highlight an increasing number of citizens who do feel uncertain about their future due to the COVID-19 pandemic and consequently agree that the European Union should have more competences to deal with the pandemic. In Malta, the citizens who agreed with such a statement is overwhelming (87%).

The majority of respondents (54%) also think that the European Union should have greater financial means to tackle the consequences of the pandemic. Locally, respondents agreed more strongly than the EU average (69%)

It is important to note that European Union citizens overwhelmingly agree (77%) that EU funds aimed at tackling the crisis should only go to Member States with a functioning judicial system respecting shared European values.
