The Central Election Commission of the Czech Republic processed 100% of the ballots in the presidential elections. This is evidenced by the data published on the site.
According to the commission, the current leader of the country, Milos Zeman won the presidential race. He got more than 51.36% of the vote. His opponent, the pro-European Jiri Dragos, won 48.63% of the vote.
After the victory, Zeman, on the air of the republican television, recalled that five years ago, a smaller number of voters voted for him. "So I am going for the next five years with an even stronger mandate and I promise not to disappoint the citizens of the Czech Republic," he said.
Dragos, in turn, said that the result he showed could not be called a loss. Nevertheless, he acknowledged defeat and congratulated his opponent on the victory.
Nine candidates participated in the first round of the presidential election, which took place on 12 and 13 of January. Five of them called on their voters to vote in the second round for Dragosh.
The President of the Republic is elected for a period of 5 years.
