In February 2018, the Public Opinion Research Centre focused on interest of Czech citizens in politics generally, politics of the Czech Republic and European Union and worldwide politics, and also examined views on the involvement of citizens in decision-making processes.
58% of Czechs are interested in domestic politics, 47% are interested in politics generally, 40% are interested in worldwide politics, and 35% are interested in EU politics. Citizens should make decisions on important local issues. This view is supported by 81% of interviewed. On the other hand, decisions on important laws and international treaties should be made by elected politicians. This view is supported by 75% of citizens in the case of laws and 82% in the case of international treaties.
