Major events at the beginning of the summer vacation

The planned election to the Chamber of Deputies became the major event of the first half of June. These events followed, keeping a considerable distance: validity of the Beneš decrees, conflict between Palestine and Israel, tension between India and Pakistan and the terrorist attacks on the USA. In late June and early July, the planned election to the Chamber of Deputies and the post-election situation were perceived as the most important major events, the significance of which can, from a long-term perspective, be compared with the reaction to the terrorist attacks on the USA.

Other events were seen as marginal when compared to the election. The first post-flood survey of the Public Opinion Research Centre is currently underway, with results expected around 10 October.
