Czech president backs Slovak presidential candidate Fico
Czech President Miloš Zeman has backed Slovak Prime Minister Robert Fico in his bid to become the country’s president. Mr Zeman told reporters that for him as a left-wing politician, it was natural to express support for a left-leaning candidate. However, the president said he was in no way interfering with Slovakia’s affairs. Mr Fico came first in a first round of voting for the new Slovak head of state last weekend; he faces businessman Andrej Kiska in the run-off to take place on March 29.
