In January 2015, 38 percent of the respondents positively answered the question "Are you satisfied or dissatisfied with how democracy works in Lithuania". This represented a 2-percent increase compared to December 2014 and a 1-percent increase compared to January 2014.

The survey commissioned by ELTA news agency and conducted on 23-31 January by pollster Baltijos Tyrimai revealed respondents under 30 were more likely to be satisfied with the state of democracy in the country, as were residents of biggest cities, people with higher education and people whose monthly household income exceeded EUR 800.

Moreover, supporters of the conservative Homeland Union were more often satisfied than dissatisfied with how democracy works - 51 against 45 percent.

In January 2015, 54 percent were dissatisfied with democracy in Lithuania, the same percentage as in January 2014 but by 1 percent more than in December 2014. More often dissatisfied with democracy were people over 50, people with secondary education, people with monthly household income below EUR 500, pensioners, workers and farmers.

As in the past, supporters of four parties remained to be more dissatisfied than satisfied with how democracy works. These are: the Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania (LLRA) (83 percent dissatisfied), the Labour Party (69 percent), the Lithuanian Peasant and Greens Union (63 percent) and the party Order and Justice (61 percent).
