ČSSD weekend party congress

ČSSD party members met during the annual conference in Ostrava on 13th and 14th of March to pass a resolution stipulating concrete requirements for the Czech Republic: clearer legal definition of confict of interest, tighter rules for party financing and election campaigns as well as precise media legislation. All these measurements need to be adopted, according to ČSSD, to ensure more democratic state. Bohuslav Sobotka has been re-elected as the Chairman of the party with 85% of votes from the delegates. Milan Chovanec has been elected as the First Vice Chairman. Prague candidates have got a strong representation in the top leadership of the party which however seems to be a problem for the regional Mayors. Yet, the Prime Minister and Chairman of the party has commented that ČSSD cohesive and stable management is considered to be a good news for the stability of the government.
