Czech elections: Social Democrats gain only slight lead over ANO 2011

Czech Republic, 26.10.2013 19:10, (ROMEA)

The elections to the lower house have once again been won by the Czech Social Democratic Party (ČSSD) with only a slight margin of victory, just like the elections of three years ago. The ANO 2011 political movement ended up closely behind the ČSSD.

The Civic Democrats (ODS), who were the governing party before the early elections were called, have now lost almost four-fifths of their MPs. Other parties to be seated in parliament include the Christian Democrats, the communists, TOP 09 and Úsvit přímé demokracie ("Dawn of Direct Democracy").

Both of the parties connected to President Zeman, the SPOZ and the Head's Up! bloc, will not be seated in the lower house, according to data on the official website for the elections. Seven parties will be seated in the lower house, two more than three years ago.

According to preliminary data, voter turnout was slightly above 59 %. Of the other groups that did not make it into the lower house, the Green Party did best, with 3 % of the vote.

The Free Party and the Pirates won around 2.5 % of the vote each, while the SPOZ won 1.5 %. None of the other groups exceeded 1 % of the vote.

The report, among other things, touches on the growth of extremist sentiment in society and the situation of Romani people in Slovakia.

The feeling that anything at all can be done to Romani people with impunity has long been sustained in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and other countries of our region by the approach taken by state bodies and institutions.
