After casting his vote in the Prague 6 municipal elections on Friday, Freedom and Direct Democracy Party leader Tomio Okamura reiterated that the election will be a referendum on the government. Since no SPD candidate contested the Senate elections in his district, he expressed his disagreement with the government’s policy by allegedly distorting a ballot paper in the name of a candidate for the government coalition. But it could be valid.

“I pinch the ballot paper and rip it again. This is how I participated in the elections and I always support going to the elections. My vote will be counted among the cast, but I expressed my disapproval and at the same time lowered the percentage (of the candidate) because I absolutely do not agree with the policy of the government coalition,” he said. Okamura.

According to the election law, a ballot paper is considered invalid if it is not in the prescribed form, is torn, or is not placed in an official envelope. On the other hand, a damaged or folded ticket is valid if the necessary information is visible on it. Validity in such a case is assessed by the District Elections Committee.

In the event of an upper house election, Okamura would like to form the upper house of opposition to the current five-member government coalition. “Senate elections have their own peculiarity. Parties that have had mayors and deputy mayors in senatorial districts for many years will have a great advantage. So I would consider it a great success if one of the SPD candidates advanced to the second round.”

“In the elections to the Senate, there is also an interest in the second parliamentary chamber to raise a voice against the unqualified and unsocial government of Peter Fiala. Because they do it in such a way that if they cannot declare something in the House, they take the help of the Senate, and the voice of the current opposition is missing All right there.”


Okamura arrived at the polling station 20 minutes after it opened. Dozens of citizens voted before him, some of whom expressed reservations about the presence of a large number of media outlets. One of the women who voted said, “Doesn’t he (Okamura) want to move elsewhere?”
