Civic Democrats say four parties unacceptable as coalition partners

The Civic Democratic Party’s election leader Miroslava Nemcova, has ruled out a coalition with four parties which she described as “undemocratic”. They are tycoon Andrej Babis’s ANO party, Tomio Okamura’s Dawn of Direct Democracy, the Euro-skeptic Chin Up and the Citizens’ Rights Party – Zemanites. Mrs. Nemcova said the Civic Democratic Party would not repeat the mistake it made in 2010 when it entered into a coalition with then newcomer Public Affairs.
