Former leftist PM wins 1st round of Czech presidential race

Published: 01.12.13, 17:52 / Israel News

Former leftist Prime Minister Milos Zeman won the first round of the Czech Republic's first direct presidential election but will face strong competition in a run-off in two weeks, partial results showed on Saturday.

 

The next president will replace the strongly Euro-sceptic incumbent Vaclav Klaus, whose final term ends in March. Many Czechs, angry over a protracted recession and a raft of political sleaze scandals, have been looking for a change. Zeman, a burly 68-year-old chain-smoking economist, won 24.7 percent of the vote, results from 87 percent of voting districts showed. (Reuters)
