The registration petitions submitted by eight of the eleven presidential candidates may need to go through a second round of checks, because many of the signatures were not verified, the daily Mlada fronta Dnes reported on Thursday. All candidates submitted petitions with supporting signatures from the public, except for Jiří Dienstbier, Přemysl Sobotka and Karel Schwarzenberg, who were nominated by their parties’ MPs. The Interior Ministry completed the first round of checks of the petitions, examining a random sample of 8,500 signatures, and said that more than three percent of them were invalid for each of the candidates. The three-percent mark is the highest that the candidates are allowed. If the second round of controls has similar results, some candidates may possibly be eliminated.
