ANO secures post of Brno mayor

17-10-2014

ANO leader in Brno, Petr Vokřál, is set to become mayor of the country’s second largest city after his party on Friday struck a deal to form a coalition with the Live Brno movement along with the Christian Democrats and the Greens. Details of the coalition deal are to be finalized by the end of the month. This comes as a blow to the Social Democrats who controlled the city hall for the past eight years and came second in the local elections last week. Coalition talks in Prague and other large Czech cities are ongoing.
