Public satisfaction with the performance of legislators has dipped to an all-time low, according to a survey, while respondents also said Hong Kong's prosperity, stability and freedoms had been eroded. The University of Hong Kong survey of 1,073 people found just 11.1 per cent were satisfied with the performance of Legco members. In March, the figure was 18.1 per cent. The latest figure is the lowest since the regular poll was first conducted in November 2000. The proportion of people dissatisfied with legislators rose to a new high of 50 per cent. Sixteen months ago, 17.8 per cent of the respondents expressed dissatisfaction with their performance. In the past four months, the number of people dissatisfied with the performance of legislators rose by 14 percentage points. Respondents were asked to rate the degree of democracy in Hong Kong. Their rating of 5.59 out of 10 was the lowest since the question was first asked in July 1997. The perception of Hong Kong's freedoms dropped from the mid-March figure of 7.24 to 6.84 - the lowest since October 2000. The poll's stability and prosperity indices fell to record lows of 5.82 and 5.18 points, respectively. Robert Chung Ting-yiu, director of the university's public opinion programme, which carried out the phone survey, said: 'All indicators have dropped ... This indicates widespread dissatisfaction in every corner of our society.'
