General elections held on the weekend showed a victory of the right wing Civil Democrats (OSD with 35.4%; 81 mandates) followed by the Social Democrats (CSSD) with 33.3% votes (74 mandates), by the Communists with 12.8% votes (26 mandates), by the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL; with 7.2% votes and 13 mandates) and finally the Greens with 6.3% votes (6 mandates). The result, however, creates a deadlock with the centre-right (ODS, KDU and the Greens) gaining 100
mandates while the left wing, CSSD with Communists having also 100 mandates.
Set of possible solutions changed after the elections outcome. ODS can build a cabinet with coalition of KDU-ČSL and SZ, but will need a "tolerance" of ČSSD. ČSSD would have the same problem - its cabinet with KSČM would have to be "tolerated" by ODS or one of the minor parties. A soulution is also a grand coalition between ODS and ČSSD. If no solution was found in 3 months or 3 attempts to build a cabinet failed, preliminary elections would take place.
