Saudi King is most popular leader: Survey

King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia is the most popular leader in Muslim countries.



Dubai: King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia is the most popular leader in Muslim countries.
According to a survey conducted by Pew Research Centre`s Global Attitudes Project, about 92 percent of Jordanians and 83 percent of Egyptians say they have complete confidence that King Abdullah will do the right things in international affairs.

The Saudi King received positive ratings outside the Middle East as well, especially in largely Muslim Asian nations, such as Pakistan (64 percent) and Indonesia (61 percent).

The survey was conducted in six pre-dominantly Muslim nations- Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Lebanon, Pakistan and Turkey as well as the Palestinian territories and among the Muslim population of Nigeria and Israel`s Arab population.

The survey found that there is limited enthusiasm for the Muslim political figures covered by the survey, with the exception of King Abdullah.

The Pew Centre said it is the second time that King Abdullah has topped the list of most popular leaders in polls conducted by it. He also clinched the top position in a poll carried out by the centre in 2007.
