The apartments of this neighborhood are meant to be lived in.
We want a fundamental change in housing policy. Prague 2 is not only for the rich. There are currently approximately 400 city-owned apartments that sit empty, which is a failure of the municipal administration.
We will work to make the apartments of Prague 2 available for long-term living and fight against their use as illegal accommodation for tourists. The apartments of our city are best used by residents for living, not for running a hotel business.
We will introduce a transparent point system for allocating social apartments. We will end the current practice in which the fate of people in need is decided by subjective impression of officials and politicians.
We will protect locals from eviction due to rising rents and the cost of utilities.
We will stop the senseless practice of the city only offering fixed-period contracts for municipal apartments. Currently, only contracts for 1 to 3 years are offered, and then must be repeatedly renewed, which leads to excessive bureaucracy and uncertainty for tenants.
We will launch the "Housing first” project to help protect people against homelessness.
We want cheaper and cleaner energy in this neighborhood.
In response to the advancing climate and energy crisis, we will select buildings in Prague 2 and develop it and manage it so that its energy consumption is provided entirely from renewable sources.
We will support the creation and development of energy communities – areas of the city that share and manage a renewable energy source.
Prague 2 has 10 primary schools which could become solar power sites as part of a pilot project. We want elementary school buildings to become part of the first phase of the energy self-sufficiency program. In the next phase, municipal buildings would be added, and the city would provide interest-free loans for solar panels for residents wanting to add solar panels or other renewable energy sources. Clean and cheap energy is the future.
In this neighborhood, we want to listen to the residents.
Prague 2 paid 35 million crowns for the new area in Folimanka Park under the Nuselsky Most. This is really too much, given that the current management of the town hall did not take into account any citizen comments on the project.
In addition to the Folimanka Park project, Kuželna in Horská is also worth mentioning: a place where you can sense Hrabal's poetry, an island of joy and community.
During the revitalization of such places, we will have an open dialogue with everyone in the community, so that the spirit of these living, historical places is not lost.
We don't want to die of heat stroke in this neighborhood.
We will plant trees in the streets wherever possible, including the larger streets. A street with trees is healthier, more attractive, and cooler. We will not only plant the trees, but make sure they are professionally cared for.
We will support neighborhood planting and care for the plants and flower beds along our streets. We will provide free advice on growing plants and trees in our urban setting.
We will place water fountains and drinking fountains in public spaces. We will want to ensure conservation of drinking water, and we will manage the public buildings of Prague 2 to make sure it is not wasted and not used wherever the use of non-potable water is possible.
In this neighborhood, we want to be able
There should not be through-transport in the city center. We will reduce traffic on the Magistrala. We will work to transform the Magistrala from a busy highway into a calm boulevard.
We will work to make Náměstí I.P. Pavlova a pleasant city square for humans, not cars, and we will create a pedestrian zone on Yugoslavska Street.
Urban cycling must be safe. Where possible, we will introduce separate, dedicated and protected bike lanes. This will ensure safety for the cyclists themselves, along with pedestrians and motorists. We will introduce two lane biking in one way streets for cars.
In this neighborhood, we want to walk on the sidewalk.
We will set and enforce rules for shared riding bikes, scooters, and similar vehicles in Prague 2. Following the example of the Cyril System that is operating in Prague 3, we will set up sufficient reserved parking areas for these vehicles, which will contribute to the safe movement of everyone on roads and sidewalks.
We will have transparency in public tenders and spending.
We will introduce participatory budgeting with the participation of citizens in the decisions on the use of city funds.
In order to submit a bid for a public contract, we will always solicit competitive bids from at least five companies with which the district has had positive experience in the past; groups that have produced quality work for the city. We will also publish notices about the procurement procedure for small-scale contracts on the websites of the contracting authority and that of the Municipal District Office.
We will extend the deadline from the publication of the call for tenders to the submission deadline to no less than 15 days in order to allow a larger number of bidders to participate in the contract competition.
How to vote
EU citizens can vote in Prague’s municipal elections
If you have temporary or permanent residence in Prague, and you are a citizen of an EU country, you have the right to vote in upcoming local elections.
Local city governments have great influence on quality-of-life at the neighborhood level, and voting is a powerful way to have your voice heard.
All of Prague, including Prague 2, will hold local elections on 23-24 September. You can vote in these September elections if:
You are at least 18 years old by voting day
You are a citizen of an EU member state
You have temporary or permanent or residence in Prague (Přechodný pobyt or Trvalý pobyt)
In order to vote, you must first register with your local city district office. Registering is fast and easy to do.
The easiest way to assure that you have the right to vote is to register at least 48 hours before election day (i.e, before 21 September). You can register in person or by mail. Legally, you can register to vote on election day at your polling place, but you can avoid complications and delays if you register now.
Please note that If you registered for a previous election, election authorities will have your ballot ready for you at your polling place.
Registering to vote in Prague 2
Registering in person takes a few minutes, but it is the easiest way. You can register directly at the Prague 2 District office, during office hours on Mondays or Wednesdays (náměstí Míru 600/20, 120 39, Prague 2). Look for the Odbor správních agend office. It is not necessary to fill out anything in advance. The staff there can help you with the application.
You will need to have with you:
proof of identity and EU citizenship (your identity card or passport)
a permanent residence permit or a certificate of temporary residence in Prague 2 (Potvrzení o přechodném pobytu na území or Potvrzení o trvalém pobytu)

What happens after I register?
A few days before the election, you will receive a paper ballot by post. The envelope will indicate your constituency code (kód volebního okrsku). You will use this code to determine your polling place.
If you do not receive the ballot documents, or if you lose them, they will also be available at polling stations on election day.
If you have any questions about the polling location or the voting procedure, contact Ondřej Jícha (tel. 00420 236 044 313, e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org) or us: email@example.com
What if I don’t register in time?
If you do not register to vote at least 48 hours before the elections of 23-24 September, go to your polling place anyway. Bring the identifying documents described above, and the members of the election commission will register you on the spot.
However, this procedure may take a little longer and there is a risk of language barriers, so we recommend registering ahead of time using one of the methods described above.
