Top court confirms elections results

The Supreme Administrative Court has rejected all 42 complaints against last month’s general elections, Justice Vojtěch Šimíček said on Thursday. The court has found two errors in the counting of preferential votes but said they could not affect the final results. The only party running in the elections to file a complaint was the Czech Pirate Party which contested the layout of the electoral districts, the five-percent threshold needed to enter the lower house, and other issues. The court said however that the Czech elections system had been reviewed by the Czech Constitutional Court which upheld it.
