Members of the campaign team of presidential candidate Karel Schwarzenberg (who finished second in the recent presidential election) have revealed they will not attempt to found a new political platform. Spokesman Marek Pražák said the campaign team had had one goal which was to try and get its candidate elected. He made clear that members respected the results, despite a thin line, in the team’s view, walked by their rivals regarding some statements in the final weeks of the campaign. Mr Pražák called on supporters to push for greater decency in Czech politics. In the runoff election last weekend, Mr Schwarzenberg earned more than 2.2 million votes – not enough to beat fellow candidate Miloš Zeman who received roughly 500,000 more.
