After the Czech Republic holds an early parliamentary election in the next few days, the maverick Communist Party may get a share of power for the first time since the 1989 Velvet Revolution that toppled 40 years of Communist rule.
Some polls suggest that might become reality.
The Communists say such a government is "a chance" for the country while opponents call it "the most dangerous outcome." Since being ousted in 1989, the Communists have survived several attempts at being banned.
