Právo: Klaus to join forces with Sovereignty party

Former Czech president Václav Klaus will return to politics by joining forces with the small Sovereignty party, Právo has reported, adding that the new grouping will be known as Václav Klaus’s Sovereignty. For her part, the founder of Sovereignty, Jana Bobošíková, said on Tuesday that they were interested in cooperating with Mr. Klaus but that he was not going to “join the party”. The group, which has no seats in the lower house, is known for its anti-EU and nationalist policies. On Monday, a close associate of the ex-president, Ladislav Jakl, denied that Mr. Klaus was planning a political comeback.
