Czech Rep.:municipal and Senate elections today and tomorrow

Results are expected on Sunday

23 September, 17:21
(ANSA) - PRAGUE, SEP 23 - Today and tomorrow, Czechs will vote to elect municipal councilors and one-third of the senators. In the city elections, 195,214 candidates will vie for 62,000 municipal council seats, and 178 will compete for the 27 upper house seats.

According to the experts, although the center-right parties in the coalition government have high electoral potential, the populist movement ANO (Action of the Disgruntled Citizen) of former premier Andrej Babis will surely strengthen its position in the local administrations.

Polling stations are open from 2 p.m. today and close at 10 p.m.

On Saturday, voters can go to the polls from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.

The overall results of the elections in the Senate could be known as early as Saturday night, whereas the complete municipal election results will probably be announced Sunday morning.
