Jakub Charvát (charvat@mupcz)
The aim of the paper is to analyze the process of introducing the direct election of the President of the Czech Republic. For this purpose, it was chosen the method of an interpretative case study where the Renwick´s typology of reform processes introduced within his concept of the politics of electoral reform became the starting analytical framework. The main findings of this analysis are that the change of the method of electing the President of the Czech Republic was carried out by political elites, but who were in a certain interaction with the public, especially because of the results of public opinion polls. These surveys showed that the public supported the introduction of direct presidential election in the Czech Republic. These findings thus lead to the conclusion that the process of introducing direct presidential election in the Czech Republic had a form of passive mass impetus in the sense of Renwick´s typology.
