Czechs resume voting Saturday in presidential poll
Czechs have resumed voting in the second round of the presidential poll pitting current head of state, Miloš Zeman, against challenger Jiří Drahoš.
Voting booths reopened at 8 AM in the morning Saturday and will remain open until 2 PM local time.
News agency CTK reported around half of the expected voters cast their votes on Friday. The results are expected to be known in the late afternoon.
The new president will have a five year term and is likely to be immediately involved in moves to establish a new government following October’s elections won by Andrej Babiš’ ANO party.
