In this episode, In Between Europe talk to Michael Colborne, a Prague-based journalist, and Sean Hanley, a senior lecturer at University College London about the mood in Prague and the future of Czech democracy.

    As expected, political party of oligarch Andrej Babish “ANO”is winner of Parliamentary elections in the Czech Republic.I think,its new chapter in the history of Czechia. Surrounding of Babish in the party are persons from big business.Leadership of businessmen means practicing of pragmatic politics focused especially on economic well-being of the country.I’m sure,that coalition government and Babish as new PM will be successful experience for Czech Republic.
    Political success of communist party also is not surprise for me.Elderly voters are electorate of Czech communists.This part of society has nostalgia of communist past of the country,which is associated with cheap life and stable incomes.I remember,while my living in Prague,conversations of groups of pensioners on bus stationsand in metro;they all repeating one sacral phrase:”Krasne Kommunisti”-“Beautiful communists”!!!
    Hope,that new pragmatic Parliament and government will restore welfare of Czechia and build prosperous society worthy of great history of the nation and beloved Homeland of great European and great President Vaclav Havel!!!

      We can hardly speak of “political success of the communist party”. This year’s result was the worst since the establishment of the party in 1921.

        Their existence in new elected Parliament of Czechia is already success.In the Parliament of Poland communists have no member!!!

          Because the Polish “communist party” (PUWP) was dissolved in 1990. But one of its direct successors (SdRP) managed to have its members elected to both, the position of the Polish President (Kwasniewski) and Prime Minister (Miller).

            Dear friend,this is a subject of great pride of Poles,that there is no communist member in their Parliament;its fact!!!
