Czech PM to support current president in upcoming presidential election

VIDEO: 'Femen' Attacks Czech President With Breasts As He Votes

The Freedom and Direct Democracy movement (SPD) has called on its members and proponents to take part in the presidential election upcoming on January 12-13 and recommended them to vote for the incumbent Czech President Milos Zeman.

Protest group Femen said the woman was one of its Ukrainian members, Angelina Diash, and compared Mr Zeman to other allegedly pro-Kremlin "political prostitutes" like United States president Donald Trump and French far-right leader Marie Le Pen.

Should Mr Zeman not get over half of the votes cast and win outright, he will face a run-off with the second-placed candidate in two weeks' time. Zeman returned several minutes later to vote and said he was honored to be attacked by a Femen activist.

She threw her hands in the air, exposing the same slogan written across her chest before the president's bodyguards immediately knocked her to the floor. "The Czech Republic needs a fearless president who will not be intimidated!"

Re-election for Zeman would give one of Europe's most ardent Euroskeptic leaders a platform for another five years.

Instead, he has sought to forge strong ties with China and Russian Federation, strongly criticising European Union sanctions on the latter and urging Ukraine to accept Moscow's 2014 annexation of the Crimean peninsula.

His closest rival is Jiri Drahos, the former head of the Czech Academy of Sciences. A convergence of Zeman with Okamura was debated in the past.

He said he considers Zeman a strong personality who is not afraid to express his opinion and is devoted to politics.
