Liška elected leader of Green Party at Prague congress

Ondřej Liška has been elected leader of the Green Party at a weekend congress in Prague. Mr Liška, who is 33, had been acting chairman since the Greens’ leadership resigned following poor results in general elections in May. He had been the clear favourite and received 125 of 209 votes on Saturday. The party was part of a coalition government during the previous parliament, but failed to make it back into the lower house this year.
