Christian Democrats left with lowest tally of senators in party history

The Christian Democrats, who are currently a member of the government coalition, have failed to win a single seat in the Senate - all three of their candidates lost out in the second round to the Social Democrats. This means that the party now has only seven representatives left in the Senate – the lowest number in the party’s history. The head of the Christian Democrats’ senators’ club called for the head of the party, Jiří Čunek, to resign in response to the result.
