Olympic Games Prague: Referendum seems Probable.

referendum olympics prague The matter of Olympic Games should be decided in a referendum. This is the result of the STEM agency and Factum Invenio study. In both cases the absolute majority stands for a referendum. If the referendum about the summer Olympics would take place now, (from the total number of 965 respondents) the supporters would win with 54% of voices. One quarter of the asked don’t know how they would vote.

61% of the respondents are afraid the Olympics would be financed of smaller cities and villages budgets. Their mayors, who assigned the research see “…the organization of the Summer Olympics at this time of bleeding town budgets as inappropriate. It is our justified concern for all the public sources, which will, at the moment, be directed to Prague and its megalomaniac action.” says a vice-mayor of Vysoke Pole Stanislav Polcak.

Completely different opinion than the mayors and majority of interviewed has the leader of Praha Olympijska (Prague Olympic community) Tomas Petera: “We do not agree with the referendum. It is even not supported by the International Olympic Committee. We don’t want the idea of Olympics to became a political theme.”
