Most Czechs against early euro adoption in current circumstances.

By bne IntelliNews May 17, 2010
About 73.8% of Czechs surveyed in a poll of SANEP said it was not necessary to seek to introduce the euro in the country as soon as possible given the current circumstances. Some 59.9% of those polled disapproved of the Greek bailout worth EUR 110mn and some 54.2% considered even that would not prevent Greece from defaulting on its debt. Almost 72% worried that current developments in Greece would affect similar countries like Spain and Portugal and 77% - that these problems would have adverse impact on other EU member states, like the Czech Republic itself. Thus, some 80.1% of those polled were against the possibility for the country to provide financial help to Greece.
