11-02-2008

A group of Czech senators who proposed economist Jan Švejnar as presidential candidate for the first election that ended without a result on Saturday is collecting signatures to nominate him again. It means that Mr Švejnar will most probably run in the second election on February 15 against incumbent President Václav Klaus. Senator Jiří Zlatuška said he expected that Jan Švejnar will be officially proposed by the same senators as in the first election.
