Czech soldiers will be able to vote in general elections at a military base abroad for the first time this May, Czech Television reported. Troops based in the Afghan province of Logar will be able to cast their ballots at a temporary consulate which is being opened there by the Czech Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the start of next month. Czech Television reported that the authorities in Afghanistan had already approved the move. Previously Czech soldiers abroad could only vote if they managed to get to one of the country’s embassies.
