Václav Klaus to run for seat in European Parliament
Ex-president Václav Klaus is considering running for a seat in the European Parliament on the ballot of his former party, the Civic Democrats, Czech daily Právo reported on Thursday. If elected, Klaus could become the chair of the European Conservatives and Reformists group, the newspaper said. The euroskeptic Václav Klaus’s term as president expired earlier this month; his approval ratings were quite low when he was leaving office but commentators say that his critical stance on the EU could draw enough support from Civic Democrat voters.
