Here We Go
If you're interested and can decipher Czech, election results are posted at volby.cz.
The "Folklore and Society" party (no. 23) received 574 votes, all from South Moravia. Probably all the members of the folklore group I've attended and the residents of a couple villages.
The Greens got 6.29%, which is only about one percent less than the Christian Democrats! (6.2% of the Greens' total votes came from South Moravia, which is a fairly good showing--the third largest number only after Prague and Hradec Kralove.)
The results were close and it looks like the coalition between the the Social Democrats and the Communists, the large "leftist" parties, have 100 votes in parliament. An opposition coalition also has 100 votes. Prime Minister Paroubek threatens a walk out. One reader responded, "What's changing?"
