30.3 per cent of the Romanians believe that Traian Basescu accomplished most of the good things for the country, among the post-revolutionary presidents, reveals a survey conducted by Inscop Research for “Adevarul” daily. He is followed by Ion Iliescu with 23,8 per cent and Emil Constantinescu with 19,6 per cent. A percentage of 26,3 per cent don’t know or didn’t answer this question, the survey shows.

At the same time, the three presidents that Romania has had since 1990 until today are all considered better than the former communist president Nicolae Ceausescu, shows the INSCOP survey.

After a quarter century after the fall of communism, Romanians value democracy in an overwhelmingly percentage – 80,9 percent. The same barometer also points that a communist party would be voted by a small percentage of the Romanian population – 14,2 per cent -, while a hypothetical candidacy of Nicolae Ceausescu would meet 17,1 per cent of the citizens’ votes.

“After 25 years since the change of regime in 1989, the Romanian’ adherence to democracy is strong. Despite the social difficulties of the transition period and some obvious unfulfillments of the democratic regime – the confidence in democracy’s key structures such as parliament or political parties remains low – the vast majority of the Romanians are fond of democracy. In historical terms, this is the biggest gain for the Romanian nation achieved in this quarter century of freedom,” said the INSCOP Director, Remus Stefureac.

If the Romanian Communist Party was to be re-established with the same political objectives as the ones before 1989 and it ran for the parliamentary elections, 14,2 per cent of the Romanians would put the stamp on this party while 8,1 per cent are not decided. 72,9 per cent would not vote for PCR while 4,8 per cent don’t know or do not answer this question.

The survey was conducted between November 27 and December 2, 2014,on a sample of 1,076 people and is representative for the Romanian population aged 18 years old and over 18 years old.
