How fragile we are
Hungary was ranked 38th in a recent survey by Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU), investigating into how democratic or totalitarian the examined countries are.
EIU classified Hungary as “a democracy with deficiencies”. EIU assessed 167 countries, by looking at 39 indicators grouped into five categories. In the category examining how much people would hate to have an autocratic leader or an “expert” government having come into power without elections, Hungary scored 6.88 point of the possible 10.
Hungary is closely followed by Lithuania. The Czech Republic finished 18th, Slovenia 27th. However, in the field of the election system and freedom rights Hungary preceded the USA, Great Britain and France. The democracy list is headed by Sweden, while North Korea is lagging behind. (Magyar Hírlap)
