NEARLY half the Balearic population thinks that the corruption scandals which have come to light over the past few years will discourage people from voting in regional elections in 2011, reported economic and social foundation Gadeso yesterday.

However, the same survey said that just under 40 percent had said that the scandals will make very little difference to how they vote. Despite the fact that blame has been laid at the door of several political parties, 2.21 percent of those interviewed claimed that it would only be the opposition Partido Popular which would lose votes as a direct result of the scandals.

Nearly 10 percent of those taking part, reported the survey, believed that the Socialists were also going to see their popularity wane but not specifically because of corruption cases. Gadeso said that the research, which is only partially finished, will be published in full next February.
