A new poll by the STEM agency suggests that many Czechs regard as the least important, in the election calendar, elections to the European Parliament. The survey asked those questioned to rank elections by points. Communal elections topped the list (receiving top marks from 63 percent), followed by the general election, regional elections, the presidential election, and voting to the European Parliament. Only 27 percent of those queried gave EP elections top ranking in terms of importance. All of the political parties in the Chamber of Deputies recently announced the names of their leading candidates; the EP election is scheduled for May.
