Christian Democrats split over support for Klaus

The Christian Democratic Party is not decided on whether to back President Václav Klaus or his rival, the Czech born, US-based economist Jan Švejnar in the presidential election in February. Mr Klaus met with Christian Democratic Senators on Tuesday to discuss his bid. He said afterwards that he hoped to gain at least some of the eleven senators’ votes. President Klaus also expressed himself in support of a secret, rather than a public ballot.
