Moreover, 40 percent of Czechs believe that the society is developing in the right direction, STEM said.

In spite of that, a majority of 64 percent of Czechs are dissatisfied, STEM added.

In early 2006, satisfaction with the political situation was expressed by 35 percent of those polled, but their share never reached this level again until this April.

In 2013, satisfaction was shown by only 8 percent of respondents.

STEM experts said people´s satisfaction with the political situation usually markedly rises after general elections.

In the Czech Republic, the latest general election was held in October 2013. Based on its result, a centre-left coalition cabinet of the Social Democrats (CSSD), ANO and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) replaced the unpopular right-wing government that collapsed over a corruption and illegal surveillance scandal in June.

The largest share of those satisfied with the current political situation and with the way the society develops are the supporters of the ruling ANO and CSSD, among whom even those satisfied prevail over the dissatisfied.

The largest number of those dissatisfied are among the undecided voters and followers of the opposition Communist Party (KSCM), Dawn movement and TOP 09.

There is a relatively higher share of partly satisfied people among the supporters of the opposition Civic Democrats (ODS) and the junior ruling KDU-CSL, the poll showed.

Mainly people with good and average living standards expressed full satisfaction, the pollsters said.

STEM conducted the poll on about 1000 people between April 14 and April 21.
