Abstract

196 seats versus 4 seats. That is the result of the October 2021 general election in the Czech Republic, says political scientist Ondřej Slačálek. The election has turned out to re-confirm the power of the problematic right-wing political parties from the 1990s which carried out questionable privatisation of the Czech industry. The Czech Civic Democratic Party is supposed to fight populism - yet its euro MPs are the members of the same political grouping as the Polish extreme right-wing, populist Law and Justice (PiS) Party, in the European Parliament. In one of the right of centre coalitions, the Pirate Party, its most liberal member and the only representative of young people, lost most of its existing support. As a result of this general election, the younger generation in the Czech Republic is now represented by mere 4 seats in parliament. The overwhelming majority of the remaining 196 seats is held by the right wing bloc, representing fifty and sixty-year-olds. What will this total disenfranchisement of the younger generation lead to? Jan Čulík discusses this and other issues connected with the results of the recent general election with political scientist Ondřej Slačálek. The interview was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Regionalnitelevize.cz from 15th October 2021.
