Nerudová pledges support for Pavel in presidential race

Danuše Nerudová, who finished third in the first round of the presidential race and thus did not qualify for the second, has announced her support for candidate Petr Pavel. At a joint press conference with Pavel on Tuesday, Nerudová said that she will support him verbally, publically and by providing him with her advertising spaces.

She dismissed Pavel’s opponent Andrej Babiš as representing evil that must not end up occupying the position at Prague Castle.

Ms Nerudová received 13.92 percent of the vote in the first round of the elections.
