Jaromír Jagr, the Czech ice-hockey star, has pledged his support for the right-of-center Civic Democrats in the upcoming lower house elections due to take place over the weekend. On Wednesday, the leader of the party, Petr Nečas, said at a news conference that he appreciated the hockey player’s long lasting support for the Civic Democrats. He added that the party did not want to ride on the wave of Mr. Jagr’s popularity, but that rather, the hockey star’s support was a testimony to the values that the Civic Democrats promoted.
