Pospíšil to focus local and Senate elections if he becomes TOP 09 leader


The MEP Jiří Pospíšil says he will focus on preparing TOP 09 for local and Senate elections, if he wins election as the party chairman in an election next weekend. The grouping’s long-term leader Miroslav Kalousek is stepping down after TOP 09 did poorly in elections last month.

Mr. Pospíšil is a former deputy chairman of another right-wing party, the Civic Democrats. He is as yet the only candidate for the top job in TOP 09.
