Civic Democrats targeting young voters and middle class with manifesto

If elected, the Civic Democrats will help the under 30s to buy their first home and make it easier for them to start their own business, party leaders said at the official launch of their manifesto on Wednesday. Acting leader Martin Kuba also said that they would focus on middle class voters and described the Civic Democrats as the only authentic right-wing party. They had been the dominant party on the right in the Czech Republic for two decades but have slipped behind TOP 09 in the opinion polls. Elections are scheduled for the last weekend of October.
