Senate by-elections decided in Prague 4, Znojmo

Run-offs in Senate by-elections for the Prague 4 and Znojmo constituencies have resulted in victories for Frantisek Prihoda, of the right-of-centre Civic Democratic Party, who earned 60 percent of the ballot, and Milan Spacek, candidate for the Christian Democrats, who got 53 percent. Defeated were Social Democrat Erazim Kohak, in Prague 4, and Civic Democrat Jaroslav Parik, in Znojmo.

The final ballot count indicates a very low overall voter turn-out: just 14.5 percent of those eligible showed up to cast their vote.
