In the statement, which was published on the Parliamentní listy website, Mr. Bém wrote that Mr. Klaus could become a symbol of right-wing values, which would help the ailing Civic Democratic party. In an interview on Sunday, Mr. Klaus said that he sees the current political situation as dire and that he is considering returning to politics. He has not yet announced any concrete decision.
