在七個國家和巴勒斯坦領土上，超過一半的阿拉伯晴雨表調查受訪者同意這樣的說法，即他們的國家需要一個能夠在必要時 "彎曲規則 "以完成事情的領導人。只有摩洛哥不到一半的人同意這一說法。然而，在巴勒斯坦領土、約旦和蘇丹，也有相當比例的人不同意這一說法。
In seven countries and the Palestinian territories, more than half of respondents to the Arab Barometer survey agree with the statement that their country needs a leader who can "bend the rules" if necessary to get things done. Only in Morocco do fewer than half agree with that statement. However there is also a sizeable proportion of people disagreeing with the statement in the Palestinian territories, Jordan, and Sudan.
The survey in Tunisia was conducted between October and November 2021. Since then there have been protests against the president, as he has tightened his grip on power by dissolving parliament, taking control of the electoral commission, and pressed ahead with holding a referendum on a new constitution which many say will boost his authority. The country's economy has meanwhile sunk deeper into crisis.
Overall most people don't expect the economic situation in their country will improve in the next few years. However there is some optimism. In six countries, over a third of surveyed citizens say the situation will be better or somewhat better in the coming two to three years.
