President Zeman makes case for changes to election system

Czech President Miloš Zeman has made his case for changes to the country’s election system. Speaking in the Senate on Thursday, Mr Zeman said the threshold for parties to enter the lower house should be lowered from five to three percent, and suggested that the number of electoral districts should be raised. These changes would lead to a higher participation by the people in politics. Mr Zeman also said he would next week present the Senate with his list of nominees for judges of the Czech Constitutional Court.
