Incumbent Zeman leads Czech presidential election: half votes counted

PRAGUE (Reuters) – Incumbent Milos Zeman led the first round of the Czech Republic’s presidential election on Saturday with 41.99 percent of the vote, results from 51.3 percent of voting districts showed.

The runner up was Jiri Drahos, a pro-Western academic, with 25.05 percent, well ahead of the remaining seven contenders.

Unless the winner takes more than 50 percent in the first round, the two highest-scoring candidates will go head-to-head in a run-off planned for Jan. 26-27.
