Černohorský elected leader of Pirate Party

Lukáš Černohorský has been elected chairman of the Czech Pirate Party at a congress in Prague. Mr. Černohorský has to date been the head of the political party in the Moravian Silesian Region. He replaces Ivan Bartoš, who stood down in June after the Pirate Party did poorly in elections to the European Parliament the previous month. The grouping, which champions the free sharing of information and internet privacy, has no seats in either chamber of the Czech Parliament.
