The Social Democrats say they have no intention of a written agreement with the Communist Party under which the latter would pledge support for a possible coalition of ANO and the Social Democrats. Martin Netolický, deputy chair of the Social Democrats, expressed their position on a TV debate show on Sunday. He said it would be up to ANO to deal with the Communists as the main party in the potential government.
Mr. Netolický also said it was not the Communists’ place to assess the names his party was putting forward for the cabinet as the party would not bear responsibility for governing the country.
Talks are ongoing about an ANO-Social Democrats minority government supported on key votes in the lower house by the Communists. This would give the latter a share of power for the first time since 1989.
