Mr Paroubek, whose Social Democrats came second in recent elections, said on Sunday he would not rule out supporting a government led by the election's winners, the Civic Democrats.

The Civic Democrats are trying to form a coalition with two smaller parties, but the three would be one seat short of a majority in the lower house.
