Poll suggests 46 percent happier with current system than with former regime

According to a new survey by the STEM polling agency, 46 percent of Czechs (down from 53 percent a year ago) say the current democratic system is better than the former Communist regime in Czechoslovakia before 1989. One-third survey said the opposite was true, while 22 percent said the two systems measured up almost the same. STEM has run the poll annually since 1992. That year, the highest number – 69 percent – said they said the current system was better. More than 1,100 people over the age of 18 took part in the survey which was conducted from January 4-11.


Rainy weather is expected in the coming days, with temperatures due to reach up to 6 degrees Celsius.
