Non-affiliated and Freedom Union senators to field own presidential candidate

A group of non-affiliated senators and senators from the junior coalition Freedom Union are planning to field their own candidate for Friday's second attempt to elect a new Czech president. They are expected to nominate Civic Democratic Alliance Senator Jaroslava Moserova. The senior ruling coalition partner, the Social Democrats have put forward their former leader Milos Zeman, while the opposition Civic Democrats' candidate remains their former leader Vaclav Klaus who obtained the most votes in the inconclusive first election last week.
