Representatives of the Social Democrats and the Christian Democrats are due to hold their first talks on the formation of a governing coalition in Prague on Tuesday evening. The latter party, who have 14 seats in the lower house, are likely to balk at the Social Democrats’ plans to roll back on a gigantic church restitution deal agreed by the last, centre right government. The Social Democrats have already held initial coalition negotiations with ANO, which came second in the elections.
