Prague - The seat of one deputy head still remains vacant in the lower house of Czech parliament as the house´s plenary session failed to elect the fourth deputy head again today.

At the first session of the new Chamber of Deputies last week, Jan Hamacek (Social Democrats, CSSD) was elected the lower house chairman and Jaroslava Jermanova (ANO), Pavel Belobradek (Christian Democrats, KDU-CSL) and Vojtech Filip (Communists, KSCM) his deputies.

Tomio Okamura (Dawn of Direct Democracy) and Miroslav Kalousek (TOP 09), advanced to the second round in which neither of them succeeded to win the post of the fourth deputy chairman.

At the second session today, Okamura and Petr Gazdik (TOP 09) ran for the post. Neither of them won enough votes to receive the post, however.

In the first round, Gazdik won 74 and Okamura 67 votes. In the second round, Gazdik won 87 and Okamura 75 votes. As 190 lawmakers were present, at least 96 votes were needed to succeed.

In the lower house produced by the October early election, the CSSD has 50 seats, ANO 47 seats, the Communists (KSCM) 33 seats, TOP 09 26 seats, the Civic Democrats (ODS) 16 seats, and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) and the Dawn of Direct Democracy 14 seats each.

The CSSD, ANO and the KDU-CSL are negotiating about a possible coalition government.

The lower house session will continue in the afternoon. As a result, the cabinet meeting, originally scheduled for 14:00, would begin only after the end of the session later today.
