The Czech Republic is heading for a new centre-right coalition favouring tough austerity measures, following the country’s general election.

The leader of the main leftist party has conceded that the vote was “certainly not a success” and that it was clear his opponents were going to form a government.

They are a wonderful people ...

Good news! When I visited in the fall, my cousins were quite concerned about the political logjam and budgetary problems. This is promising.
