Brewer offers beer to students who pledge to vote


Brewer Stanislav Bernard is offering beer to young Czechs in order to encourage them to vote in next week’s elections. He has promised kegs of his Bernard beer to the first 250 secondary school classes in which 85 percent or more of eligible voters pledge to go to the polls. Mr Bernard is a right-leaning former candidate for the Czech Senate. Right wing parties did best in a recent mock election of 15- to 19-year-olds held by a Czech NGO.
