Abstract

Jan Čulík and Bohumil Kartous discuss the results of the general election which took place in the Czech Republic on 20th and 21st October 2017. In the elections, traditional mainstream political parties lost out and voters primarily gave their support to authoritarian, populist and xenophobic parties which have no concrete political programmes and used the emotional appeal of frustration and xenophobia in the election campaign. Bohumil Kartous argues that it is a symptom of how undeveloped Czech civic society is that voters have been willing to vote for those political parties whose sole purpose is to make money for their leaders by manipulating the public. The interview was broadcast by Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from Wednesday 1st November 2017.
