The leader of the Dawn party’s ballot for the European elections, Klára Samková, has been given until Monday to step down over allegations of fraud. Ms Samková, who is an attorney, faces accusations that last year, she acted as a front for a company that wanted to buy its own debt from a bank, an illegal transaction under Czech law. Dawn party leader Tomio Okamura told reporters on Saturday that if Ms Samková does not quit by Monday, she would be removed from the ballot. Klára Samková, meanwhile, has denied any wrongdoing. In a statement, she said the accusations were deliberately meant to hurt her chances in the elections.
