Czechs go to the polls on Friday afternoon in the first round voting for a new president. Nine candidates are in the running, including current president Miloš Zeman, who is seeking another five year term.
If no single candidate wins a majority of votes in polling Friday and Saturday, a second round will be held between the two top scoring candidates in two weeks’ time.
Eight candidates, minus Zeman, took part in a final debate at Czech Radio’s Prague centre on Friday before polls opened. Zeman has refused to take part in any debates with other candidates.
