Potential coalition partners to wait for Social Democrat crisis resolution

Leaders of the ANO and the Christian Democrat parties said on Monday they would postpone talks about forming a coalition government with the Social Democrats until the crisis in that party is resolved. A coalition of Social Democrats, ANO and Christian Democrats has emerged as the most likely outcome of the weekend’s general elections. Christian Democrat chairman Pavel Bělobrádek said he would meet with leaders of both fractions within the Social Democrat party, Bohuslav Sobotka and Michal Hašek, to discuss the situation while ANO leader, Andrej Babiš, said his party was monitoring the situation, and would discuss a course of action at their MPs’ meeting on Wednesday.
