Translation on politics

1. Už za necelé čtyři roky možná poneseme k volbám do Poslanecké sněmovny volební lístky, na nichž bude za každou stranu namísto dlouhé kandidátky jen jedno nebo dvě jména.

- "za každou stranu" - does this mean that on each ballot paper there will only be a few names, or does it mean that on the ballot papers there will only be a few names from each party?

I am confused because "strana" can mean 'party' or 'side'!


2. Posílení většinových prvků by nově nevadilo ani lidovcům.

- "livocům" is the political party KDU-ČSL? I'm not sure here what wouldn't bother them. Something to do with strengthening majority elements?

    Today: Every political party has one ballot paper with a lot of names on (mostly) one side of that paper

    In the future? Every political party should have one ballot paper with only one or two names on one side of that paper.


    2. Posílení většinových prvků by nově nevadilo ani lidovcům.

    - "lidovcům" is the political party KDU-ČSL? I'm not sure here what wouldn't bother them. Something to do with strengthening majority elements?

     

    "lidovci" - informal word for members of the KDU-ČSL political party

    Exactly. They would loose their chance to be part of central government for ever.
