73 100 Consolidated Democracy
The ratings are based on a scale of 1 to 7, with 7 representing the highest level of democratic progress and 1 the lowest. The Democracy Score is an average of ratings for the categories tracked in a given year. The Democracy Percentage, introduced in 2020, is a translation of the Democracy Score to the 0-100 scale, where 0 equals least democratic and 100 equals most democratic.

header1 Score changes in 2020

  • Electoral Process rating declined from 6.50 to 6.25 due to instrumental changes to the electoral framework and mistakes during the European Parliament elections that temporarily deprived an eligible party of a mandate.
  • Judicial Framework and Independent rating declined from 5.25 to 5.00 as the investigation into the murder of journalist Ján Kuciak revealed the influence of organized crime figures and oligarchs on the justice system.
