The report, issued on Tuesday, stated that “it is a time of historic transition in Afghanistan, and the new government is inevitably grappling with simultaneous security, political, and economic challenges.”
It stated that after last year’s presidential runoff election, the national mood was initially high and people felt the results would improve lives.
However, this year’s survey shows that Afghan optimism about the overall direction of the country fell to the lowest point in a decade, after steadily rising through 2014.
