EurActiv.com - Czech parties fire first shots of EU election campaign | EU - European Information on EU Elections 09

The main Czech political parties are gearing up for the EU elections by loading their electoral narratives with negative attacks against adversaries, neglecting to take a stance on European issues.

The governing right-wing Civic Democratic Party (ODS) and the left-wing Social Democratic Party (CSSD) have initiated largely negative campaigns for the next elections to the European Parliament, set to take place on 4-7 June. 

Internal rather than pan-European issues are largely expected to dominate debates during the pre-election period. The opposition CSSD is widely expected to win the elections and will consider the ballot successful if it gains eight to ten of the 22 seats reserved for Czech MEPs.
