Survey finds that opposition Social Democrats would gain majority if elections were held today

According to a survey by the Academy of Sciences’ Public Opinion Research Centre, 33.5 percent of Czechs would vote for the opposition Social Democrats if an election took place today. The Civic Democrats, currently the strongest party in the three-party right-of-center government coalition, would only gain 12.5 percent of votes. Only 3.5 percent of all respondents said that they would cast their ballot in favor of junior coalition partner Public Affairs, which was at the center of a recent corruption scandal that brought the government coalition to the brink of collapse.
