Prime Minister Jan Fischer warned at a commemorative conference on Tuesday of the dangers of a dysfunctional democracy. He said that the Czech Republic had all the institutional requirements of a free and functioning democracy but citizens still had to play their part in making it work properly. The Prime Minister warned that the rise in violence, selfishness, xenophobia, racism and disconnection from society all contributed to a dysfunctional democracy. The right institutions were just packaging without the parallel moral contribution from citizens, he added.
