Around 110,000 EU nationals, both permanent and temporary residents of the Czech Republic, are entitled to vote in the municipal elections scheduled for October 10 and 11, the State Electoral Commission said on Monday. The announcement comes after a Brno court upheld a Slovak man’s demand to register for the elections. A local town hall in Brno turned the man down arguing he was a temporary resident. But the court said EU nationals must meet stricter conditions to become permanent residents than Czech citizens. The State Electoral Commission said additional ballots had been printed in order to allow EU citizens to participate in the voting.
