Prague 10 sees major changes

Prague Daily Monitor |
9 October 2018

The city's largest district saw a major political reshuffle as the established parties were pushed to wayside and the citizens group VLASTA and the Pirates won the district. VLASTA which is led by Senator Renata Chmelov√° got 11 seats, and the Pirates 10, beating the ODS and ANO who got 8 and 7 seats respectively in the 45 member house.

It is logical to assume that the Pirates and VLASTA will govern together, especially given the fact that Olga Richterova, a former councilwoman from Prague 10 and VLASTA member, is now an MP and national vice president of the Pirates. It is unclear where the other 2 seats needed to form a majority will come from.
