59% of Panamanians consider that they will not be able to meet the basic needs of their family, if they manage to take away the benefit of the digital voucher. 39% said it is very or somewhat likely that it can, according to the Gallup Panama poll.

In the middle of last month, the spokesperson for the Panama Solidario Plan, Omar Ahumada, said that President Laurentino Cortizo was analyzing extending the Vale Digital payment “for a few more months.”

69% of Panamanians do not benefit from the delivery of the Digital Voucher, the monetary transfer provided by the Government to help families cope with the economic crisis generated by the covid-19 pandemic.

Only 30% said yes, while 1% did not know or did not respond.

For the survey, 1,200 interviews were applied between June 4 and 8. The questionnaire was applied face to face in the home of the person surveyed. Gallup Panama maintains that the results of this survey have a confidence level of 95%, with a margin of error of 2.8 points.

Political favors

In the midst of the clandestine vaccines scandal, 56% of those surveyed believe that political favoritism is being applied. 37% say who really needs it.

Regarding government hiring, 85% say it is done for political favors and only 8% think it is for personal merits.


Despite the disagreements, 74% of those interviewed said they see little or nothing likely that they will go out to protest in the streets. 24% said that it is something or very likely that it will.

Among the reasons why he would go out to protest are lack of work (37%), corruption (18%), there is no food at home (14%), education of his children (13%) and tax increase (9%) .

“Surveys are opinion studies subject to not reflecting the certainty of the results.”
