In the Czech Republic, the support for a return to Communism was very low in 1994 (7 per cent) and in 1996 (9 per cent). The political crisis in the second half of the 1990s in the Czech Republic produced a high level of political dissatisfaction and an unexpected rise in support for a return to Communism with a share of 16 per cent of the Czech electorate.
