A barrage of criticisms leveled by the House of Representatives against the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK), which is now the subject of a House inquiry, has failed to erode public trust in the antigraft body.

A recent public opinion survey finds that the KPK is perceived as the most trusted institution in the country, while political parties and the House are perceived as the least trusted institutions.

In the survey, released on Thursday, the KPK tops the list of most trusted institutions, while political parties receive the poorest score of 35 percent followed by the House with 51 percent.

It also finds that 58 percent of the 2,235 respondents said they were very satisfied with the work of the KPK while 12 percent said they were satisfied, 24 percent unsatisfied, 2 percent very unsatisfied and 4 percent gave no answer.
