29-07-2008

President Václav Klaus is the best speaker among Czech politicians, according to a study evaluating the rhetorical skills of ten leading Czech politicians. The Westminster polling agency, which conducted the study, praised the head of state for his “thorough use of formal language, clarity and communicability of his speeches”. Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek was ranked ninth, due to his “inability to formulate a simple thought into a comprehensive whole”. Controversial Christian Democrat chairman Jiří Čunek came last.
