Civic Democrats back Jiří Drahoš in run-off presidential elections

The Civic Democratic Party has given its endorsement to Jiří Drahoš in the second round of direct presidential election set to take place in two weeks’ time. The suggestion was made by the party chairman Jiří Fiala on Sunday at the party’s congress in Ostrava.

Jiří Fiala, who was re-elected chairman of the Civic Democrats on Saturday, called on Czech citizens to take part in the presidential election and said that Miloš Zeman’s second term in office is not in the country’ best interest.
