European Conservatives win in Czech Republic

Congratulation to the Czech ODS, who have topped the poll in the Czech Republic with 9 seats. The group is now guaranteed to meet the 20 MEP requirement to be recognised as an official group. The second hurdle, that at least 20% of the countries of the EU must elect members to the group, is yet to be met, although the leadership claims that parties from several other countries have expressed their intent to join the group. We won't know the outcome for some days, during which there will be much wrangling with independents and parties willing to switch allegiance, as is customary after every European Election!
