ABSTRACT
The article provides an update on the negotiations between the two political parties in the Czech Republic, the Civic Democrats (ODS) and the Social Democrats (CSSD) to form a new government. Reports indicate that the negotiations collapsed when the CSSD made a push to form its own government, but then failed to attract enough support. Expectations arise that the ODS will return to the original plan of a tri-partite coalition with the centrist Greens and Christian Democrats.
