The article focuses on the uncertain future of politics in Czech Republic. The domestic political environment in the Czech Republic, stabilized from the government crises suffered in spring, is fairly benign, with all eyes focusing on what could be closely fought parliamentary elections. Given the unsavory circumstances surrounding Jiri Paroubek's appointment as Prime Minister, when support for the party was at its lowest, his determined approach has been relatively successful in restoring credibility to the government--latest opinion polls point to a gradual recovery in support for the Social Democrat Party.
