Support for Civic Democrats down to only 6 percent, suggests poll

20-08-2013

The Civic Democrats, once the dominant party on the Czech right, now have only 6 percent support, suggests an opinion poll carried out this month by the ppm factum agency. The survey also indicates that backing for the traditional biggest left-wing party, the Social Democrats, is at 21 percent, lower than in a number of previous polls. Among the other parties, right wingers TOP 09 have 10 percent backing, according to the research; the Communists have 9 percent; and President Zeman’s Citizens’ Rights Party–Zemanites and businessman Andrej Babiš’s ANO are both on 5 percent, which is the threshold for entering the Chamber of Deputies.
