Prague, Nov 3 (CTK) – A majority of Czechs (56 percent) are dissatisfied with the result of the October regional elections, according to a STEM opinion poll released on Thursday, compared with about three fifths of people who were satisfied with the regional election results in 2008 and 2012.
Turnout in the regional elections held on October 7-8 was 34.6 percent. A slight majority (52 percent) of those who cast their votes are satisfied with the election result.
On the contrary, 64 percent of those who did not vote are dissatisfied with the result.
STEM analysts said no marked differences in people’s satisfaction between individual regions have been registered.
Supporters of the ANO movement and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) tend to be satisfied more often than others, while the most dissatisfied are supporters of the Communist Party (KSCM).
ANO won in nine of the 13 regions. The Social Democrats (CSSD) won in two regions and they did not defend their leading positions in nine regions. The KDU-CSL won in one region and the regional branch of the Mayors and Independents won in one.
The poll was conducted among 1054 respondents on October 13-21.
