#Topper: Narendra Modi 2nd Best Performing World Leader - Survey

Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi has placed second in a list of the world’s top performing leaders.

Mr Modi was pipped to the top spot of the 30-strong list, by Japanese market research firm GMO Research, by Chinese President Xi Jinping with German chancellor Angela Merkel third. 

The survey was conducted this fall and involved 26,000 respondents in more than 30 countries with the results published by the Harvard Kennedy School’s Ash Centre for Democratic Governance and Innovation. 

President Obama and British Prime Minister received ‘middling’ ranks, according to reports. 

Lowest ranked overall was Russian president Vladimir Putin. 

Chinese president Xi topped the list in both inspiring confidence in his citizens and handling domestic and international affairs with Mr Modi trailing slightly behind him.

Intriguingly Russian President Putin came in third on both counts. 

Analyst Anthony Saich said: “In countries where a single party dominates, or where public debate about political leaders is constrained, citizens typically rated their own officials much higher than did respondents in nations with a multi-party system and a more open and robust press."

On Modi's performance in the list, Mr Saich said: "Two things did surprise me — how well Modi came out.  I just put that down to the fact that he'd only just been elected and so I suspect that a lot of people didn't really know very much about him, and his own nationals were probably still in the phase of him having won the election."
