Mock elections being held at nearly 400 Czech schools

Mock elections are being held at nearly 400 secondary schools around the Czech Republic on Wednesday and Thursday, just over three weeks ahead of elections to the Chamber of Deputies. The project is organized by the NGO People in Need and is aimed at encouraging young people to take an interest in politics. Those aged 15 and over can take part. It is the fourth time Czech students are being asked to participate in mock elections.
