Czech prime minister enjoys unusually high regard among population, survey suggests

Almost 90 percent of Czechs rate the caretaker prime minister, Jan Fischer, favorably, suggests a STEM agency survey published on Tuesday. The authors of the survey said such a high approval rating was very unusual. The prime minister has the most supporters amongst voters of right of center parties, while he is least popular with Communist party voters. Minister of Human Rights and Minorities Michael Kocáb received the most critical ratings. Overall, about 50 percent of the population trusts the government, the best rating since 2002, when Vladimír Špidla’s cabinet received an approval rating of 55 percent.
