Two way fight for Senate seat
Christian Democrat and Civic Democrat candidates will go head to head in Zlín and Uherské Hradištĕ next week to fill the senate seat vacated by Tomio Okamura. The two candidates gained the most votes after polling closed on Saturday without anyone obtaining more than half the votes cast. The Christian Democrat won 23.36% of votes with his ODS rival on 16.52%. Okamura was elected to the lower house of parliament in elections last October.
