As per the latest report by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), an estimated 73 per cent of Indians have faith in the Narendra Modi-led NDA government- the highest in the world. The ruling party has completed over half its tenure and one can effectively say that the PM has successfully maintained political stability and rendered decisive leadership.

India was followed by Justin Trudeau's Canadian government which has managed to win the trust of 62 per cent citizens. The report stated that Theresa May's British government stands at 41 per cent and the United States government led by Donald Trump only has mere 30 per cent support. The top five countries included Turkey and Russia, both at 58 per cent and Germany with 55. The report said that trust in the government is strongly correlated with citizens' approval of their country's leadership and perceived spread of corruption in government in OECD countries.

Also, actions of the countries' leaders and the consequential public opinion about them has an impact on the public perception of the government institutions they represent.
