In one of the most high-profile second-round battles for the Senate mandate, Citizens’ Democratic Senate Speaker Milos Vistorchil defeated ANO candidate Yana Nagyova by more than 20% in the Jihirava constituency. Nagyová, who is currently on trial for corruption alongside ANO party leader Andrej Babiš, recently personally participated in an election rally in the city of Vysočina.
Vystrčil told Czech TV that his team beat Babiš with “100 members and an infinite amount of money”.
Jihlava’s run-off election saw a relatively high voter turnout of 38.3%.
