The number two man in the Social Democrats, Michal Hašek, is the MP who missed the most votes in the Czech lower house in the first six months of this year, according to research published by the group KohoVolit.eu. One Communist deputy made fewer votes, although she had a baby at the start of the year, while MPs Roman Pekárek and David Rath are in jail, with the latter on remand. KohoVolit.eu said Mr. Hašek has had a poor record of participation in votes for some time.
