Prague - Czech senator Tomio Okamura will lead the list of candidates of his movement Dawn of Direct Democracy in the Central Bohemia Region in the end-October early general election, he told journalists today.
Okamura´s rivals in Central Bohemia will include former agriculture minister Petr Bendl (Civic Democrats, ODS) and former Communist (KSCM) lawmaker Stanislav Grospic.
Okamura presented eight regional leaders and said he will present the remaining six on Monday.
Some of the leaders of the lists of candidates presented today were formerly members of other political entities. This is true of deputy Radim Fiala, who was elected in 2010 for the ODS, but left it earlier this year.
Deputy Jiri Stetina was elected for Public Affairs (VV) in the previous elections just like David Kadner.
The leadership of the VV that became a junior government member in 2010, but went into opposition after it split last year, decided on Monday not to have its own lists of candidates in the October elections and that some of its members will run for Okamura´s movement.
Okamura has estimated that four or five out of his movement´s 400 candidates will be VV members. One of them may be VV chairman Vit Barta.
Okamura´s movement wants to push through a presidential system, the possibility to dismiss politicians, and judges and state attorneys´ financial liability among others.
Okamura says a law on general referendum is a key point of his movement´s manifesto.
