Some 11,800 out of 22,500 members of the Czech Social Democratic Party have taken part in an internal referendum, a party spokesperson said on Wednesday. In the vote, they were asked whether ballot nominees should be approved by all party members in an electoral district, whether the party should adopt a 40-percent quota for women on ballots, and whether the number of public offices held by Social Democrat members should be limited. The results of the referendum are to be announced later on Wednesday.
