Vladimir Dlouhy until Monday to decide whether to turn to the Constitutional Court


PRAGUE (MEDIAFAX) - One of the rejected candidates for President Vladimir Dlouhy announced that on Monday twice before applying to the Constitutional Court. The Supreme Administrative Court had ruled on Thursday that in his case, the Ministry of Interior was properly refused when candidacy for the number of invalid signatures on petitions.

"The Supreme Administrative Court rejected the arguments of my appeal against the decision of the Ministry of Interior, November 23, 2012, which me due to insufficient number of signatures of citizens refused to register as a candidate for president. Decision of the Supreme Administrative Court at the moment I take note of. Announce next steps on Monday after a thorough study of reasoning that led to the court's decision, "said Long.

He has previously signaled that it will not turn to the Constitutional Court at any cost, even though it was he who after retirement as first pointed out that the Ministry of the Interior chose mathematically flawed and illogical procedure for discarding fault signatures from presidential petitions. "When my legal team finds the reasoning of the Supreme Administrative Court major error, I will proceed in accordance with its previous statements and advocacy will not look at the Constitutional Court. My main goal is to make the first direct presidential election was held in a dignified manner and within the deadline," Long repeated.

"I knew that the law on the direct election of the President is not perfect and that his candidacy for myself I take the risk that some of its provisions can backfire nestranickým candidates.I am convinced, however, that I have obtained the signatures of more than 50,000 people supporting my candidacy for president. In collecting signatures I proceeded openly and honestly. With the election campaign, traveling across the country and interviews with people with my supporters I have gained invaluable experience, which can be assessed in the future. The reasons that led me to the candidacy thus dissatisfaction with the current situation and the belief that I can offer something to the Czech Republic, certainly not gone away, "said Long.

SAC on Thursday handed down a verdict of candidates excluded by the Ministry of Interior of the first direct presidential election. In addition to those who did not meet the legal requirements and did not submit a petition with fifty thousand votes, it concerns Jana Bobošíková, Tomio Okamura and Vladimir Dlouhy. The only verdict is Bobošíková court returns to battle for the Castle.

The Court thus acknowledged the objection that the Department erred in calculations. This is the error rate in the two control samples with each candidate, which reduces the total number of signatures, counting instead be averaged. Bobošíková so after a modified calculation needed over received 50,000 votes, according to the court decision it must register ministry.

"We concluded that the Ministry of Interior has committed illegality in question showing the average error of the two investigated samples to the total number of signatures submitted," he said on Thursday SAC chairman Vojtech Senate election Šimíček with the fact that the only solution is to correct errors averaging.

In the case of Vladimir Dlouhy and Tomio Okamura, the court held that the error of their signature sheets are so high that even after re-calculated number of signatures is less than 50,000, and their complaints were thus rejected.

The intra already tolerates criticism of opposition. For example, CSSD deputy chairman Jerome Tejc hopes that the Ministry of Interior will draw political responsibility, he indicated that the errors should become boss chair the Department of Public Administration Vaclav Henych.
