The Polish electorate were quite sceptical about the future chances of the Sejm between 1991 and 1996 with a low share of optimists oscillating between 38 per cent in 1996 and 47 per cent in 1994. After years of instability and uncertainty, which several times looked very bleak, we find 90 per cent optimistic about the Polish parliament in 1998, which indicates a late stabilisation of parliamentary democracy in Poland, which at the same time is pushing the young Polish democracy at the first rank concerning this indicator of democratisation among the Central European political systems.
What do you think? Please tell me whether you agree or disagree with the statement that it would be best to get rid of parliament and elections and to have a strong leader who can quickly decide everything. Included in that item as ‘democratic’ are all people who ‘strongly disagree’ or ‘somewhat disagree’ with a strong leader as alternative to democracy. Item 6: Rejection of a military regime as alternative to democracy (cf. Chapter 3). Question: Our present system of government is not the only one this country has had.
At the beginning of the process of political transformation towards democracy in 1991 and 1992, we find a record level of democratic euphoria in Romania with 69 and 68 per cent of the Romanian electorate supporting the young Romanian government and being relieved after the nightmare of the Ceausescu regime. After the cooling down of democratic euphoria in 1991 and 1992, the level of democratic support fell somewhat to 60 per cent in 1994 as well as in 1996. The positive rating of the incumbent government in Romania grew from 60 per cent in 1996 to 66 per cent in 1998, which reflects the positive reactions of the Romanian population to the change in Romanian government in 1996 to Prime Minister Konstantinesco.
