Czech Republic: First Direct Presidential Elections were held here.

The result of first direct Presidential elections held in Czech Republic was declared on 25 January 2013. Milos Zeman emerged as winner. He won 55 percent as compared with 45 percent of Karel Schwarzenberg. Milos Zeman is the former Prime Minister of Czech Republic and head of the Party of Civic Rights-Zemanovci (SPOZ) while Karel Schwarzenberg is foreign minister in the present centre-right coalition government. Zeman succeeded Vaclav Klaus as the President of Czech Republic.

The Czech Republic is a land-locked country in central Europe. Until 2012, the Parliament elected the President for a five-year term. After a long discussion, fueled by allegations of corruption in the voting process, the constitution was amended in 2012 to provide for direct Presidential elections.
