Czech Prime Minister Paroubek’s comments at his press conference point out a fundamental truth; there seems to be some difference between the exit polls and the actual vote. In short, it may turn out that the Social Democrats and the Communists together will have 101 votes – a one-vote majority – in parliament.

Aktualne.cz writes that the next government may be either a caretaker government or a leftist one. The caretaker government may occur if there is a 100:100 stalemate in the parliament; ODS would support this caretaker government until new elections could be held.
