Free Bloc (Czech: Volný blok), formerly Czech Sovereignty (Czech: Česká suverenita) and Sovereignty – Jana Bobošíková Bloc (Czech: SUVERENITA - blok Jany Bobošíkové), is a small Czech political party.

Origins

It was formed after the break-up of the electoral alliance Suverenita – blok Jany Bobošíkové, Strana zdravého rozumu between the Party of Common Sense (Strana zdravého rozumu) and Politika 21 (led by Jana Bobošíková, the conservative and Eurosceptic former MEP).

It was formed in 2011 in Prague.[6] Since January 2014 its leader is the former social democratic MP Jana Volfová.

History of the electoral alliance Suverenita – blok Jany Bobošíkové, strana zdravého rozumu

The Party of Common Sense took part in the 2002 election to the Chamber of Deputies three months after its foundation, but won only 0.2% of the vote. This increased to 0.5% of the vote in 2006 election.

The alliance ran in the 2009 European election under the name 'Sovereignty' and led by Bobošíková, an MEP elected in 2004 for the Independent Democrats. The list came fifth, winning 4.3% of the vote: just short of the 5% threshold for representation. Sovereignty took part in the 2010 election, and won 3.7% of the vote, falling short of parliamentary representation once again.

History of the Free Bloc

Free Bloc took part in the 2021 election, and won 1.33% of the vote, falling short of parliamentary representation.[7]
