Economist Jan Švejnar, whom the Social Democrats are considering fielding as their candidate for the post of president, has said he is not yet certain he wants to enter the race. Mr. Švejnar said he would prefer to see the new election rules which Parliament has yet to agree on before making up his mind. The US-based economist is slated as one of the two hot candidates for the post together with the former prime minister Jan Fischer. The other Social Democrat nominee being considered is Social Democrat deputy head Jiří Dienstbier.
