Poll: 60 pc of Romanians regret Ceausescu’s death

Almost 50 per cent of Romanians claim their lives would have been better had there been no revolution in December 1989, while 60 per cent of them regret Nicolae Ceausescu’s death, an opinion poll conducted on December 19-21 by the Romanian Institute for Evaluation and Strategy shows.


84 per cent of them believe it was wrong to execute Ceausescu without a fair trial, while a little over 50 per cent state they disagree with the execution of the Ceausescus.


According to the opinion poll, 45 per cent of Romanians believe that their lives would have been better had there been no revolution, with only a little over 25 per cent believing their lives would have been worse.
In fact, 21 years later 61 per cent of the respondents state they are faring worse, compared to just 24 per cent that state the opposite.


In what concerns the December 1989 events, the Romanians’ opinions differ: 45 per cent claim they constitute a revolution while 45 per cent claim they constitute a coup d’etat. 64 per cent of Romanians believe external forces were involved in the events, 51 per cent of them pointing to Russia.
