New Prague coalition discusses transportation at first meeting

Transportation was the first topic of negotiations between members of the coalition of parties that's formed to lead Prague following the weekend's local elections. Few details were released to the public, as the sides are still in the phase of finding out what they agree on, but the fate of the Liben bridge (whether to replace or repair it) was one of the issues the group confronted. "We're trying to find where our programs coincide and where they differ," said Viktor Mahrik, of the Pirate party. He added that the talks are unlikely to finish up any time soon, especially on the question of transportation, which he describes as highly complex. Other issues will include urban development, public spaces, housing and the issue of monuments preservation. For the first time in recent history, the coalition set to lead Prague does not include ODS, CSSD or ANO. Despite this, some real estate professionals at Expo Real yesterday were still unsure whether the current line-up is the final one, hinting that some surprises could still be on the way.
