The Czech Interior Ministry has excluded a fringe political party from running in the upcoming elections for the European Parliament, a spokesman for the ministry said on Friday. The Czechoslovak Socialist Party failed to pay a 15,000 crown fee to register for the elections, according to the ministry which also excluded three candidates from other parties over their failure to meet the conditions for running. In total, 38 political parties will field candidates for the European elections which will take place at the end of next month.
