PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech ANO party should talk to its current coalition partners first on forming a new government but will hold consultations with all parties in parliament, deputy party chief Jaroslav Faltynek said on Saturday.

ANO was seen winning over 30 percent of the vote in this weekend’s election, results from 87 percent of voting districts showed, far ahead of all rivals.

ANO has been a junior partner in a three-party coalition alongside the centre-left Social Democrats and the centrist Christian Democrats.
