Hundreds follow concert for former prime minister Topolánek

According to organisers, hundreds turned out to watch a concert for former prime minister Mirek Topolánek on Prague’s Wenceslas Square on Tuesday. The concert was organised to thank Mr Topolánek for what he did whilst at the head of government, said organisers. It also formed a part of the Civic Democrats’ campaign ahead of early elections in October. Mr Topolánek’s government fell in a no-confidence vote halfway through the Czech Republic’s EU presidency in March. On Tuesday, violin virtuoso Pavel Šporcl was amongst the performers appearing in support of the former prime minister.
