President Václav Klaus says election results show clear weakening of main parties

President Klaus said the preliminary election results showed a clear weakening of the two main parties, the Social Democrats and Civic Democrats. That was an evident conclusion to draw from them, he added. The Czech president said that weakening had been expected before the election and was not a complete surprise. He refused to be drawn on the format of a future government saying that all the results needed to come in.
