A poll carried out by Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reveals the general public has mixed feelings about the new government after 100 days in office. The government gets an "A" for unblocking EU funds but a "D" for the speed of fulfilling election promises and the situation with farmers' protests.

After 100 days in office, Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (DGP) has conducted a poll to ask Polish people to assess the results of the new coalition's work. 

Among its perceived successes and moderate successes are unblocking EU funds, its foreign policy, dealing with excesses of the previous government and changes in public media. 

Its Failures are perceived to be the speed of implementation of changes, its handling of the farmers' crisis - connected both with Ukrainian grain and EU policy - and its failure to implement trumpeted improvements in women's rights.   

These results are particularly significant because of the local government elections next month, beginning on April 7th. Local media and local-government media have been discussing them.
