The Czech Republic held elections for the Regional Councils and one-third of their Senate. The Czech Social Democrats were wiped out in both elections. In regional elections, it was replaced by a much more openly radical left-wing party. However, in the Senate, it was replaced by center-right parties. The SPD, which is part of Matteo Salvini's EU grouping, came in fourth place in regional elections, but they only placed seventh place in the number of seats they got.
