MP who collapsed during presidential election released from hospital

Social Democratic MP Evžen Snítilý, who collapsed during the presidential election on Saturday, has been released from Prague’s Střešovice hospital. His condition is reported to be much improved. His collapse sparked a highly publicized conflict between the ruling Civic Democrats and the opposition Social Democrats. Several Social Democrat deputies accused Interior Minister Ivan Langer and another MP from the Civic Democrats of pressuring Mr Snítilý to support Václav Klaus in the third round of presidential elections.
