On a Czech Television discussion programme on Sunday, Karel Schwarzenberg said he would not quit as foreign minister in connection with his presidential campaign. He said he would discuss how to proceed with the prime minister, Petr Nečas, during the coming week. For his part, Miloš Zeman said he appreciated an endorsement from his former party the Social Democrats, saying their support proved they were a genuine left-wing party. Both candidates said they would not run a negative campaign. The two are set to meet in a presidential debate on Czech TV on Thursday.
