Zeman’s party to collaborate with Social Democrats?

Meanwhile, there have been suggestions that the Citizens’ Rights Party-Zemanites could collaborate in some way with the Social Democrats, Mr. Zeman’s former party. Newspaper Hospodářské noviny said Social Democrats’ first deputy chairman Michal Hašek had indicated that the Zemanites and his party could even merge in the future.

While some Social Democrats fear the future president will undermine the party and settle scores arising from personal animosity, others remain loyal to the man who in the 1990s built the party into an election winning force.
