quote:the (conservative) ODS would probably gain 69 seats in the 200-member Chamber of Deputies, and the (social democratic) CSSD only five seats fewer. Other parties that would enter parliament if elections were held now would be the (communist) KSCM with 42 deputies and the (centre-right) KDU-CSL with 25 deputies.
So the centre-right alliance (Christian Democratic Union KDU and Czech People's party CSL) and right would have 94, and the left 106. But the social democrats will not govern in coalition with the communists. But their preferred alternative, a continued coalition with the KDU-CSL, would have only 89. In the previous election this combination won a slim majority of 101.
