Almost 38% of the surveyed people's deputies gave "good" or "excellent" grades to the new government headed by Volodymyr Groysman. The level of approval of President Poroshenko activities was slightly lower at 36.4%, although the president got twice more A's from lawmakers than the government.

Meanwhile, MPs proved to be much harsher on themselves as only 18.2% of the surveyed gave positive assessments to own work, found a survey of people's deputies of Ukraine, held by Gorshenin Institute in late September 2016.

In particular, 10.4% of responding deputies gave "excellent" grade to the activity of the president of Ukraine, 26.0% gave "good", 31.2% - "satisfactory", 22.1% - "bad", and 10.4% - "very bad" grades. Thus, the president has received more positive ratings ("good" or "excellent") - 36.4% higher than disapprovals ("bad" and "very bad") - 32.5%.

The same applies to parliament's assessment of the Cabinet's work: 37.7% of deputies view it positively, 29.9% - negatively. Thus, 5.2% of respondents gave "excellent" grades, 32.5% - "good", 32.5% - "satisfactory", 19.5% - "bad", 10.4% - "very bad".

The deputies' evaluation of their own work proved diametrically opposite. Only 18.2% of the surveyed deputies view it positively, while whole 40.3% stated in the negative. Over 40 percent the surveyed grade the work of Ukrainian parliament at C-level.

Only 2.6% of respondents gave the work of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine "excellent" grade, 15.6% - graded it as "good", 41.6% - "satisfactory", 32.5% - "bad", 7.8% - "very bad".

The survey of people's deputies of Ukraine by Gorshenin Institute was held from 20 to 23 September, 2016. The sampling has been designed taking into account the number of deputies in the Verkhovna Rada factions. The questionnaire survey embraced 163 parliamentarians.
