The Christian Democrats have objected to plans for a two-way debate between leaders of the two main parties ahead of October’s elections. The party has protested Czech Television’s plans for a debate between leaders of the Civic Democrats and Social Democrats on the last Sunday ahead of the vote. They say such a format risks distorting the vote. They want the two-way debate widened to include more parties. Christian Democrat leader Cyril Svoboda said that the recently re-elected head of the public broadcaster had a chance to show his mettle against pressure from the two main parties.
