Gazdík and Okamura to contest final deputy speaker’s post in Chamber on Wednesday

Petr Gazdík of TOP 09 and Tomio Okamura of Dawn will face each other for the fourth and final deputy speaker’s position in the Chamber of Deputies in a vote on Wednesday. Other candidates for the post have dropped out, the chairman of the lower house’s electoral commission told journalists on Tuesday. Mr. Okamura failed to win the position when he ran for it last week. Mr. Gazdík replaces TOP 09’s Miroslav Kalousek, who also proved unsuccessful in the earlier vote.
