Schwarzenberg: Social Democrats and Zeman are to blame for communists’ influence today

Chairman of the TOP 09 party, Karel Schwarzenberg, criticized Czech politicians who came to power after 1989 for allowing the influence of the Communist Party to grow, at a conference entitled Communism Yesterday and Today. The Foreign Minister said that the Communist Party is preparing to potentially be part of the government after the 2014 elections, a situation that was aided by the conduct of the Social Democratic party and the next Czech president Miloš Zeman. TOP 09 senator Jaromír Štětina said that he is planning to once again ask the current government to request the Supreme Court to suspend or dissolve the Communist Party.
