University of Michigan Professor Czech president?

jan copy.jpg The Czech Republic and the Unites States are now, in a way, closer than ever, as a University of Michigan economics Professor Jan Svejnar may be elected as the new Czech president in the coming elections next month.

In the Czech Republic, president is elected indirectly, by the parliament. Jan Svejnar’s opponent is the current president and former prime-minister Vaclav Klaus. As the election previews show, respected and popular Klaus is the favorite. However, Svejnar is a quality candidate and he will, in my opinion, stand a great chance in the presidency elections of 2012, when Klaus’s mandate expires.
