New anti-EU party in the Czech Republic

Petr Mach, a close confidante of Czech President Václav Klaus, has founded the "Party of Free Citizens" (SSO) in Prague, which opposes the Treaty of Lisbon and will participate in the European Parliament elections. The conservative daily Lidové noviny is sceptical about the new party. "It is unlikely that the party will play a significant role on the political stage. Mach and his friends will no doubt be able to attract a few notorious opponents of the EU reform treaty. But there aren't that many of them. In the conservative camp Lisbon tends to meet with approval. ... Instead of representing a serious threat to the [major conservative ruling party] ODS in the battle for conservative votes, Petr Mach is simply being used as a new pawn by Václav Klaus."
