Atlantic Eye: Monsoon season in Ostrava
OSTRAVA, Czech Republic, July 22 (UPI) -- Nineteen years after communism's demise, the Czech Republic is mostly a model of success. Still, many in the Prague political classes are less interested in public policy than in their own political legacy. A Social Democratic mayor in the Moravian-Silesian Region and the conservative regional governor are good examples of political cooperation across party lines and thinking out of the box.
