Another poll has confirmed that the former prime minister Jan Fischer is the people’s top choice for president. Shortly after a poll by the Median agency put Fischer strongly in the lead, a survey by SC &C has confirmed his position. According to this latest poll Fischer would get 25 percent of the votes, followed by economist Jan Svejnar with 13 percent and entrepreneur Tomio Okamura with 9 percent. Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg, who will also run for the post, would likewise get 9 percent, up from 6 in the Meridian poll. Mr. Schwarzenbery recently noted that Jan Fischer was his most serious rival saying that during his time at the head of an interim cabinet he had not done much and consequently botched nothing.
