Czech Republic: Election may open door to Communists

Written by on October 24, 2013 in Europe - No comments

Czechs are heading to the polls on October 25 and 26 2013 to elect a government for the first time since the previous right-wing ruling party collapsed in scandal last June. And the election is shaping up to be one of the most interesting since the fall of Communism in 1989.

Taking place under a cloud of cynicism, a once easily called election is now relatively tight. In a country tired of politics and seemingly constant corruption, voting patterns are also shifting. And regardless of the outcome, analysts say the election means a monumental shift in Czech politics and the fall of the Czech right.

The Social Democrats (ČSSD) are the likely winners, but despite victory, who they will lean on for secondary support in government remains the biggest question.
