A decade after joining the European Union, some 28 percent of Czechs are satisfied with membership, suggests an opinion poll conducted recently by the CVVM agency. A similar survey carried out this time last year found that 26 percent of Czech citizens were satisfied with EU membership. In the two European Parliament elections in which Czechs have participated turnout was 28.3 percent in 2004 and 28.2 percent in 2009, below the EU averages of 45.6 percent and 43 percent, respectively.
