History and profile
The paper emerged following the Velvet Revolution, when some editors of the daily Rudé právo founded a new company unaffiliated with the Czechoslovak Communist Party but taking advantage of the existing reader base. Today the paper is not directly linked to any political party, but maintains a left-wing stance and tends to focus on social issues. It is published by Borgis. a stock company that issues only Právo and its supplements, owned for 91% by the paper's editor-in-chief, Zdeněk Porybný. It is the only Czech national daily that is not owned by a foreign company.
In October 2003 Právo had a circulation of 189,583 copies and was the third most read newspaper in the Czech Republic. The 2007 circulation of the paper was 164,157 copies. The circulation of Právo was 145,031 copies in 2008 and 138,476 copies in 2009. It was 128,404 copies in 2010 and 120,449 copies in 2011.
