The junior coalition party, Public Affairs, will elect a chairman in roughly two weeks. Citing anonymous sources close to the party’s club of deputies, the Czech Press Agency writes that the party will announce a winner on Monday, May 23. Some 20,000 registered party members will cast their ballot online for the second time in the party’s history. In addition to the current chairman Radek John, four others will be vying for the position, including frontrunners Vít Bárta, considered the party’s de facto leader, and head of the club of deputies Karolína Peake.
