Prague - The Czech Social Democrats (CSSD) have won the early general election, but with the worst result in history and they could form a government with support of the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) and ANO 2011 of billionaire Andrej Babis.
Though Babis first refused to participate in any government, he later tonight allowed for negotiating about a future government.
The CSSD, ANO 2011 and KDU-CSl will have together 111 seats in the 200-mandate lower house of parliament.
The CSSD counted with forming a minority government with support of the Communists (KSCM), but the two parties will only have a total of 88 seats (50 and 33, respectively).
The CSSD could also negotiate with the Dawn of Direct Democracy of senator Tomio Okamura. The CSSD, ANO 2011 and Dawn would also have 111 mandates altogether.
Other possible majority coalitions could be formed by four parties and so they would be rather theoretical.
A majority of 103 votes would be held by ANO, the ODS and TOP 09, if they reached agreement with either the KDU-CSL or Dawn.
