Complaints start to be lodged about lower house elections


The first five complaints about the conduct of the lower house elections on May 28 and 29 have been made by Czech citizens and not parties. The 10-day period for complaints to be lodged began on Wednesday. The Supreme Administrative Court said some complaints arrived ahead of Wednesday. During the last elections in 2006, 70 complaints were lodged but none were upheld. The court has 20 days after the closing date for complaints to give its verdict.
