Czech Republic: Presidential Election 1

Dr. Sean's Diary writes about “farce and deadlock” of the Czech presidential election – here and here: “Then we get to voting proper – sort of. In the best Czech traditions, deputies and senators actually spend the next nine hours trying to agree procedural questions – whether they will vote in a secret ballot or openly, and how they should decide that (jointly or as seprate chambers). Finally, as evening wears on, they find a compromise and agree to vote in public.”
