Czech elections were won by the opposition, and for the first time the Communists did not get into parliament

The Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia (KSČM) suffered a historic fiasco in the October 8-9 parliamentary elections in the Czech Republic.

With 99.62 percent of the votes counted, the Communists failed to pass the 5 percent threshold, winning only 3.62 percent of the votes. Since its founding in 1990, KSČM has always been present in the Czech Parliament.

The Social Democrats, who were junior partners in the coalition with Andrej Babiš's ANO 2011 party, also failed to get into parliament. They received 4.66% of the vote.

Opponents of current Prime Minister Babis won the elections in the Czech Republic. First place went to the center-right opposition coalition "Together" (SPOLU). It has 27.72% of the vote.

The ruling party ANO was second with a slight lag of 27.20%.

In third place is another center-left opposition coalition "Pirates and Elders" with 15.54% of the vote.

The eurosceptic party "Freedom and Direct Democracy" garnered 9.59%.

As a reminder, before the elections in the Czech Republic, Pandora Papers were published, according to which Prime Minister Babish had purchased real estate on the French Riviera through offshore companies.

Babish has denied all accusations related to this investigation
