ⓘ Pravo

Pravo emerged in 1991 following the Velvet Revolution, when some editors of the daily Rude pravo founded a new company unaffiliated with the Czechoslovak Communist Party but taking advantage of the existing reader base. The paper is not directly linked to any political party, but is ideologically close to the Czech Social Democratic Party. It maintains a left-wing stance and tends to focus on social issues.

In 2019 Pravo allowed the Chinese embassy to produce an eight-page paid supplement to the paper labelled as a" theme and commercial supplement.” The articles featured exclusively positive coverage of China and were signed by the paper’s reporters.

Pravo is published in Prague by Borgis. a stock company that issues only Pravo and its supplements, owned for 91% by the papers editor-in-chief, Zdenek Porybny. The paper is published in broadsheet format.
