The Ano movement of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš is set to dominate municipal elections in October nationwide while the opposition Civic Democrats (ODS), the Pirates and far-right Freedom and Direct Democracy Party (SPD) also have a great chance of success, according to polling agency SANEP.
Of six major cities surveyed, only in Prague would Ano not take first place, where the movement would end third behind the Pirates and ODS, said SANEP, without providing detailed numbers.
Ano would win in Brno, Pilsen, Liberec, Ostrava and Ústí nad Labem while the Pirates will likely gain ground in Pilsen and Brno, it said.
