Czech Senate election dates and Voting Live 2020 

Senate elections were held in the Czech Republic on 5 and 6 October 2018 alongside municipal elections, with a second round held on 12 and 13 October 2018. The Conservative Civic Democratic Party (ODS) won the election with 10 seats. Governing parties ANO 2011 and the Czech Social Democratic Party were heavily defeated, winning only 1 seat each. The Communist Party lost its last seat in the Senate when Václav Homolka failed to be re-elected, meaning the party would be without representation in the Senate for the first time in the history of Czech Republic. The election was considered the first major win for the opposition to Andrej Babiš' Cabinet. Commentators including Josef Kopecký also noted ODS confirmed their position as the main opposition party, ahead of the Czech Pirate Party.


The Electoral system of Czech

One-third of the 81-member Senate is elected every two years, giving Senators six-year terms. Members of the Senate are elected in single-member constituencies using the two-round system.

Czech Republic Presidential election Dates 2018

Czech Republic Presidential election Date: 31 January 2018

Former Czech Prime Minister Miloš Zeman was elected the President of the Czech Republic in 2013, defeating Minister of Foreign Affairs Karel Schwarzenberg in the country's first direct presidential elections. All previous presidential elections were indirect.

According to polls conducted in 2016, Zeman is the front-runner and his chances of re-election are considered high, although it was speculated that Zeman's candidacy would be determined by his health. Zeman announced his candidacy on 9 March 2017. His bid may receive support from the Czech Social Democratic Party (ČSSD) and ANO 2011. Some commentators have speculated that Zeman could be elected in the first round.

Zdeněk Škromach was the first candidate to announce his intention to run, in 2015. In response, Tomáš Halík announced that he would run for president if Škromach did. This led former president Václav Klaus to announce that he would run against Halík if he was running without a strong rival.Halík later decided not to run.

Czech Republic Muslim Population Percentage 2017 By City Demographics Religion

Czech Republic Demographics Population Religion Percentage 2017

According to the 2010 census, there are around 3500 Muslims in the Czech Republic (less than 0.1% of country's population), compared to 495 in 1991.

With an estimated population of 10,512,419 at 1 January 2014, compared to 9.3 million at the beginning of the 20th century, the population growth of the Czech Republic has been limited, due to low fertility rates and loss of population in and around World Wars I and II.Czech Republic Demographics Population Religion Percentage 2017 Population loss during World War I was approximately 350,000. At the beginning of World War II the population of the Czech Republic reached its maximum (11.2 million). Due to the expulsion of the German residents after World War II, the Czech Republic lost about 3 million inhabitants and in 1947 the population was only 8.8 million. Population growth resumed, and in 1994 the population was 10.33 million.

From 1994-2003 natural growth was slightly negative (-0.15% per year) and the population decreased to 10.2 million. Since 2005, natural growth has been positive, but in recent times the most important influence on the population of the Czech Republic has been immigration: approximately 300,000 during the last decade.
