The ruling Social Democratic Party organized a Labour Day happening on Prague’s Střelecký island on Thursday attended by close to a hundred party sympathizers. Prime Minister and party leader Bouhslav Sobotka highlighted the government’s achievements in its first 100 days in office, promised the public a lower, 10 percent VAT rate on medicines as of 2015, measures to create new jobs and urged them to go to the polls in European elections later this month. The Social Democrats used the opportunity to campaign in the European elections, handing out leaflets and outlining the party’s priorities.
