"There is no agreement yet. There will be more candidates, three, maybe four. This will be the first time in history, always a candidate, exceptionally two. It will be a drama until the last minute," says Eva Davidova, a spokesman for senator chamber, to Newcastle.
The Senate President will be the one who gets the majority of the votes in the first round of the election. If no one gets it, the second round will happen. There are two candidates with the highest number of votes.
Adepts on the head of the senate are three. Jaroslav Kuber from ODS, Jan Horník from STAN and Václav Hampl for Lidice.
Senate senator Milan Štěch (CSSD), on Sunday, told Czech television that he was waiting for a fourth name to be on. He is not named somebody.
No club has a clear majority
The debt to choose the boss came after the elections in October. No party has a clear majority in the upper chamber. Previously, gentleman's agreement had been that the president's position would be the strongest club.
CSSD had so far, but the Social Democrats lost in the election and only have 13 senators. After 18 members, ODS and STAN have 15 members.
Earlier history, the president has always agreed in advance. Senators chose only two of the two candidates in 1998 and 2004. At that time, Libuše Benešová (ODS) and Petr Pithart (KDU-CSL) and Přemysl Sobotka (ODS) and the non-party Josef Jařab were nominated. In both cases, ODS representatives won.
