Prague parties seal new coalition deal over city hall

An agreement between three political parties, ANO, the Social Democrats, and the three-way coalition (composed of the Christian Democrats, Greens, and party of mayors, STAN) has been signed aimed at the future running of Prague City Hall. The deal brings together the same three groups who fell out in October last year leaving the Czech capital rudderless. The agreement has the backing of 34 of the 65 members of the council. An new council executive does not feature the Green leader Matěj Stropnický, who previously clashed frequently with mayor Adriana Krnáčová.
