Prague TOP 09, Social Democrats unable to reach deal on new administration

Representatives of the Prague branches of TOP 09 and the opposition Social Democrats have held talks but failed to agree on a potential coalition at City Hall. According to the Social Democrats, the two parties were unable to agree on a majority of conditions on Thursday; further talks were not officially ruled-out and the Social Democrats are expected at the weekend or on Monday to discuss their next step. The party’s Miroslav Poche was critical, accusing TOP 09 of not wanting to find real solutions or comprise on problems faced by the city. He went on to suggest that a new agreement between TOP 09 and members of the rightist Civic Democrats was at this point more likely.
