The National Assembly takes place every two years and it primarily elects the Chairman of TOP 09, Vice-Chairman, members of the Presidency and members of the Executive Committee.
On June 11, 2009 Karel Schwarzenberg and Miroslav Kalousek found a new conservative party called TOP 09.
It is based on a platform of conservatism and fiscal responsibility with a strong emphasis on European Judeo-Christian tradition.
On June 26, 2009 the party is registered and approved by the Ministry of Interior.
In the European Parliament elections in 2014, four MEPs were elected for TOP 09 and Mayors.
