The chairman of the Social Democrats says if his party wins upcoming general elections, their preferred option would be a coalition with centrists, with a minority cabinet supported by the Communists another alternative. Jiří Paroubek made the comments on a TV debate programme on Sunday. He said he did not envisage forming a coalition with the Communist Party, who have never been in government since 1989’s Velvet Revolution. Their leader Vojtěch Filip said he expected the Social Democrats to enter a coalition with the right-of-centre Civic Democrats after the elections, which will take place on the last weekend of May.
