Czech politicians hopeful stable British government can be formed despite shock result


Czech politicians have expressed hope that a stable government will emerge from the stalemate following Great Britain’s snap election in which Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives lost their Parliamentary majority. One aim, from the Czech perspective, is for there to be a capable partner in negotiations on Brexit – Great Britain’s departure from the EU. Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka welcomed Labour’s strong finish, saying he expected the party to have a clearer influence on British domestic and foreign policy.
