After the failure of the Equal Opportunities Party during the recent elections for the European Parliament, Štefan Tišer has resigned his post as chair. The party's new chair is its former adviser, Miroslav Kováč.  

"Today, 5 June 2014, the statewide convention of the Equal Opportunities Party (Strana rovných příležitostí - SRP) was held in Prague. Miroslav Kováč, a former adviser to the SRP leader, has now been elected chair," a press release issued by the party reads. 

"The leadership change occurred after the former chair, Štefan Tišer, offered to resign after the party's failure during the EP elections. Miroslav Kováč was proposed as party leader by the delegates to the Statewide Convention, ran unopposed, and was elected," reads the press release. 

The party was created in January 2012 with the aim of "defending the interests not just of Romani people, but of all socially vulnerable strata of society." The party wants to defend the interests of the socially vulnerable inhabitants of the Czech Republic and advocate for them in the fields of education, employment, equal access to health care, housing, and social services.

The SRP says its main aim is to strive for the country to experience permanent economic growth. The party would like to see each citizen's level of health, living standard and safety increased such that everyone receives the opportunity to participate in the country's economic development.
