Political challenge in old style

Prime minister Jiri Paroubek (CSSD) challenged Mirek Topolanek (ODS), leader of strongest opposition party on duel in time of coming elections. Paroubek used old style: He send a message of challenge to political debates in medias send by historically dressed delegates in historical chariot. They arrived to office of ODS and offer to Topolanek weapons: Sword, pistols and election programme. Delegates also brought recommendation of Paroubek to Topolanek to choose election programme.

Leader of Civic democrats (ODS) didn’t want to react, then he accepted. All it was happened because Paroubek says that Topolanek avoids Paroubek’s challenges, but Topolanek refused this accusation.

“This kind of challenge is little bit a fun,” says Paroubek.
But challenge was accepted. Fortunately Topolanek truly chose election programme as a weapon – otherwise there would be chance to lose one or two of strongest politicians at Czech scene.
