After the regional elections in October 2016 the times of large centre-right parties in the Czech political constellation now seem to have become a distant prospect. The middle class camp is still fragmented. The result of the ODS with 9,7 percent doesn’t indicate their comeback to a large party. The KDU-ČSL achieved 10 percent together with regional coalitions. However, the TOP 09, which separated from the KDU-ČSL in 2009 is now settled in only six regional parliaments with 3, 40 percent of votes.

The conference “The Future of Centre-Right Parties” organized in cooperation with the political institute TOPAZ will discuss the current developments and strategies of value-oriented politicians in respect of the rising success of populist movements. Main-speakers will be the leaders of the three biggest centre-right parties Petr Fiala (ODS), Miroslav Kalousek (TOP 09) and Pavel Bělobrádek (KDU-ČSL). Other speakers will be: Ondřej Benešík (KDU-ČSL), Pavel Svoboda (KDU-ČSL), Luděk Niedermayer (TOP 09), Markéta Pekarová Adamová (TOP 09), Martin Červíček and Martin Kupka (both ODS), Nico Lange (KAS) and Vít Novotný (WMCES).

At the conference there will be a simultaneous translation to Czech and German.
