In my opinion, the European Election wasn’t interest for Czech’s policy until now. Yes of course, they want to be win in this election, but they won’t use their standarts methods.
As you probably know, in last month Czech’s goverment was deposed. If you more look on happening, you will get reason: no financial crisis, inability head of country or swine flu Long-running unstability of goverment due to result last election. Only the three vote differ winner from the others. Such “assembled goverment” have never been successful because great ideas didn’t approve.
Nowadays, politicians prepare to early Czech election in autumn 2009. European Election will be good test, how they can increase effectivity their campaign.They are changing strategies - not only focus on candidates (name, face), but power of party would be ingredients for victory. So, they introduce bigger campaign than I expected. I’m still thinking, the main purpose to be statesman in Brussels is big income. For example future politician will have two times bigger salary than president of Czech republic - Vaclav Klaus.
The stronges parties in Czech republic are ČSSD, KDU-ČSL KSČM, ODS, ZELENÍ. (alphabetuc order).
ČSSD - left-wing politic, prefer social system, orientation on people with low or middle income, relate to PSE (http://www.socialistgroup.org/gpes/)
KDU-ČSL - Christian party, relate to EPP-ED (http://www.epp-ed.eu)
KSČM - electorships are almost old people, Communist party,relate to EUL-NGL (http://www.guengl.org)
ODS - right-wing politic, orientation on pepople with high come, relate to EPP-ED (http://www.epp-ed.eu)
ZELENÍ - relate to Greens-EFA (http://www.greens-efa.org/index.htm)
Last election was won by ODS and habit in our country is that, next election will win opposition. Victor determine rules, change law and move country forward. This changes are made at expense of citizens voting other parties.Research doesn’t show unexpected facts.
Preferences for European Election
ODS has started built campaign on the internet ( http://www.youtube.com/tvods), so they want raise perecent
They support ODS as “brand” (Blue Team)
or parody ČSSD (in this video you’ll see chairman of ČSSD, which is famous for make coalition’s treaty with communist party KSČM)
Other research (online public inquiry ) shows if parties are changing strategy, citizens will vote mainly according to famous name or faces (2)
