The executive bureau of the CSSD (Czech Social Democratic Party) than officially announced their support. He had support of the SZ (Green Party) from the beginning. But the communist party and KDU-CSL (Christian Democratic Union) still didn’t speak clearly.

Svejnar is a politician who puts development first: “It is time to turn the page from the black-and-white view of the world. That left of right perception of the world, that can be summarized by the slogan ‘with Klaus, or left’, is an example of polarization, where you have to choose.” Said Svejnar for MF Dnes. He also announced he wants the presidential post to be more “modern, dynamic and especially effective.”

The elections will be on 8th February 2008.
