Czech Senate Endorses Direct Presidential Election, Pravo Says

The Czech upper house of parliament approved a law allowing direct presidential election, completing the legislative process needed for the popular vote, Pravo reported, citing results of the Senate debate.

The Senate approved the change late yesterday and the first president elected directly by the people will replace Vaclav Klaus after his term ends in March next year, the newspaper said.

The president, who was until now elected by lawmakers, doesn’t hold executive powers, although he selects the political leader who attempts to form a government after general elections and picks members of the central bank’s rate-setting board.
