Parliament, the Judiciary, and the opposition have been ranked as the poorest performing institutions in the country according to responses gathered during a recent Infotrak survey.

Of the responses received, Parliament, including both the Senate and National Assembly, received a rating of 42 per cent, equivalent to a grade of D. This marks a significant drop from their mean rating of 53 per cent in March 2024.

The Judiciary was rated at 46 per cent, a decrease from its 67 per cent mean rating in March, where it held a B rating. Only 4 per cent of respondents believe the Judiciary is performing excellently, while 13 per cent felt it was doing a good job.

The opposition, which had a rating of 62 per cent in March, also saw a drop, receiving a rating of 47 per cent in the May survey. Out of the 1,700 respondents, only seven per cent rated the opposition's performance as excellent, while 16 per cent rated it as good.

The survey was conducted between May 23-29, 2024, using quantitative interviews through Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviews (CATI). The sample included 1,700 adult Kenyans aged 18 and above, with 980 respondents having knowledge of the Finance Bill.

The sampling frame was designed using Population Proportionate to Size (PPS) guided by the 2019 Census. The survey covered all 47 counties and eight regions of Kenya.
