Právo: Most Civic Democrats back Svoboda on Prague Pride

Civic Democratic officials are largely unbothered by their colleague Prague Mayor Bohuslav Svoboda’s support for the Prague Pride parade, according to the newspaper Právo. The daily reports that only a part of the senior governing party agrees with their former chairman, President Klaus, that the mayor was wrong to allow the march to be held under his auspices, and that such a decision was unbecoming of a conservative politician. Officials canvassed by the paper concurred that the disputes over the issue were needlessly vitriolic.
