March's survey of CVVM made an inquiry into the attitudes of citizens towards the constitutional competencies of the president. Questions in the survey concerned the range of presidential competencies in general and also with regard to several particular competencies such as granting of amnesty or stopping a lawsuit, dismissing the Chamber of Deputies and refusing the law passed by the parliament. Two questions asked about the role of president in appointing the Board of the Czech National Bank and in appointing the judges of the Constitutional Court. According to the survey, 23 % of respondents would leave the decision about the granting of amnesty or the stopping of a lawsuit to the president alone, what is 21 percentage points less than in January 2012.
