In related news, Czech President Václav Klaus cast his European Parliament election vote on Saturday in a Prague suburb. He said his departure from the rightwing Civic Democrats late last year made his choice more difficult but refused to say whom he backed. The President said he hoped the vote would result in a European Parliament that was more sensible and more significant than it had proved in the past. Mr Klaus – a well-known eurosceptic and opponent of the EU’s reforming Lisbon Treaty - added that the vote could help decide the future shape of Europe. The President in previous comments described the Europe-wide vote as a waste of time.
