Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates), Prague's Mayor, wrote an open letter to his coalition partner Jiří Pospíšil (TOP 09), the leader of the Spojené síly alliance, criticizing his recent comments about the coalition.

Pospíšil had earlier accused the Pirates of unfair play over their proposals to tax unoccupied apartments and their attempts to change the composition of the Supervisory Board of the city's gas company, Pražská plynárenská. Hřib also criticized Pospíšil's attempts to politicize their differences, in his campaign for the upcoming European elections.
