Website in support of artist/composer launched

The latest to announce their interest in running for the post of president, tattooed composer and artist Vladimír Franz launched a website on Thursday dedicated to a potential bid. Like all candidates not officially backed by a set number of MPs or senators in Parliament, he will have to obtain 50,000 public signatures to officially run. One of those to have already fulfilled the requirement is former Social Democrat prime minister Miloš Zeman, who opinion polls have put in second place behind early ‘front-runner’ Jan Fischer, himself a former prime minister who headed an interim government in 2009.
