Hundreds gather in Sobotka’ support

Some 400 people gathered at the Prague Castle are on Monday afternoon in support of the embattled Social Democrat chairman, Bohuslav Sobotka. Some of the participants hoisted banners criticizing Mr Sobotka’s party rival, Michal Hašek, and his allies including President Miloš Zeman. Bohuslav Sobotka attended the rally in person, and told his supporters he was ready to lead coalition talks on behalf of his party despite the fact he had been excluded from the negotiating team by his party opponents.
