In related news, Czech President Václav Klaus, who cast his ballot in the local elections in Prague on Friday, called on Czech voters to come out to polling stations and vote. Mr Klaus said the election will show whether people still support the new parties that got seats in the lower house of Parliament in May’s general elections. The Czech President told reporters he did not use the option of preferential votes on his ballots; he said he believed “serious parties” should get the chance to run the city, rather than “instant”, inexperienced candidates.
