Globally, trust in government and media has decreased, said this in the annual report of the Edelman Trust Barometer

Public confidence in the government and media has eroded over the past year amid the coronavirus pandemic, while concerns about fake news are at an all-time high. This information has been given in the annual report of 'Edelman Trust Barometer' released on Tuesday. This report is released every year during the Davos Summit of the World Economic Forum. It has also been shown that business has taken the place of government as the most reliable. The government and media have come in second and third place.

Globally, 76 percent of respondents said they are concerned about fake information or news being used as a weapon, according to the study. Spain tops the list with 84 per cent, while India is at the fifth position with 82 per cent.

China tops the average percentage of people taking NGOs, businesses, governments and media, while India ranks fourth and Russia is at the bottom.

India ranks second after Indonesia in terms of trust in employers

India is also in the top five in terms of economic optimism. India ranks second (90 percent) after Indonesia (91 percent), while China (89 percent) ranks third in terms of employer confidence. Korea has come last. Confidence in business, governments and the media has waned in India, while it remains unchanged with respect to NGOs.

People who participated in this survey from India said that they have the highest trust in NGOs. The survey was conducted in 28 countries. In the survey, more than 31 thousand common people and about six thousand knowledgeable people were talked to.

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Do you know these things about Anthony Albanese who defeated Scott Morrison? Many challenges will be faced as Prime Minister

Australian voters have pushed for an end to nine years of Liberal rule in favor of a centre-left opposition that has promised strong action on climate change. To form a majority government, parties need a majority of 76 seats. The Labor Party's Anthony Albanese, who won the election, will now be the new Prime Minister of Australia. After the election results were out, Morrison said he would resign as leader of the Liberal Party. He said that he takes responsibility for his party's defeat. The Labor Party currently holds 73 seats, according to the Australian Electoral Commission. Early vote counts showed a strong bias toward Greens candidates and independents, who sought emissions cuts far beyond commitments made by Morrison's coalition.

Who is  Anthony  Albanese 

Albanese is one of Australia's longest-serving politicians and was briefly deputy prime minister under Kevin Rudd in 2013. He has earned a reputation as a defender of free healthcare, an advocate of LGBT rights, a Republican and a diehard rugby league fan. Albanese, 59, had a childhood spent by a single mother with the help of a disability pension. At the age of just 33, he reached Parliament in 1996 by winning the Sydney seat on a Labor Party ticket. In 2007, when Kevin Rudd's Labor Party came to power, Albanese was made Minister of Infrastructure and Transport. Due to internal strife in the party, the Prime Minister was changed and Anthony Albanese became Deputy Prime Minister. But his tenure as Deputy PM lasted only 10 weeks. His party lost in the next election.

 Challenges ahead for Albanese as Prime Minister?

One of Albanese's first priorities as prime minister will be to rebuild relations with foreign leaders, who Morrison says has neglected foreign policy in recent years. China recently signed a military agreement with the Solomon Islands near Australia, China is planning to build its first military base in the Pacific. On Tuesday, Albanians are expected to be in Tokyo for talks with quad members from the United States, India and Japan, where they will discuss priorities for safeguarding free passage in the Indo-Pacific. Voters have turned to the Labor Party over the Liberal Party's inaction on climate change. Marija Taflaga, director of the Australian Politics Study Center at the Australian National University, noted the vote's shift to the Greens.
