The first round of additional elections to the Senate of the Parliament of the Czech Republic starts today in the Trutnov electoral district. In total, nine candidates (five of whom are women) run for one seat in the Senate. The average age of the candidates is 54 years.

Polling stations in the electoral district No 39 will be opened today from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. and tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.; afterwards, ward election committees will start to count votes and write a record about the progress and the result of the voting. The record shall be signed by all members of the ward election committee confirming thereby that it is correct, for which they are also fully responsible. One counterpart of the record will be handed over to the Czech Statistical Office, which will sum up the results and publish them.

“Provided that in the first round of the senatorial elections no candidate wins an overall majority of votes, there will be a run-off second round for the two candidates with highest numbers of votes. The run-off would be carried out on 12 and 13 January 2018 (Friday and Saturday),” Marek Rojíček, Vice-President of the Czech Statistical Office, says.
