PM wants party chairmen to agree on election method

11-02-2008

Prime Minister Mirek Topolánek on Monday told journalists that he wanted the chairmen of the coalition and opposition parties to agree on the voting method in the presidential election that will start on Friday, February 15. Mr Topolánek said the public vote proved inefficient in the first election and he would therefore try to ensure wider support for a secret ballot that previously only the Civic Democrats were pushing for.
