Mirek Topolanek was re-elected as the chairman of Civic Democrats (ODS). Topolanek was the only candidate. The ODS congress also confirmed his mandate to create the government. ODS will try to form the government without any support of Communists and refused grand coalition with Social Democrats (CSSD).
Topolanek will negotiate about a new government with other political parties CSSD, KDU-CSL (Christian Democrats) and Greens. Only Greens refused to participate in such a cabinet. The early elections are still the ODS’s priority, the question is when. Next year elections do not seem to be very probable. ODS will likely try to form a more stable government with elections perspective in 2008 or 2009.
