Sights Of The Czech Election Campaign

Czech voters will elect a new parliament on October 25-26. The previous parliament was dissolved in August following weeks of turmoil and the collapse of Prime Minister Petr Necas's government amid a bribery scandal. The election is likely to give the Communist Party its best result since the Velvet Revolution nearly 25 years ago. Opinion polls show the Social Democratic Party in first and the Czech Communist Party (KSCM) in second. The center-right parties ANO and TOP09 are running third and fourth. (12 PHOTOS)
