Background

Bartoš leads party since 2016. He decided to run for another term. Deputy Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies Vojtěch Pikal and MP Mikuláš Ferjenčík decided to challenge him.

Bartoš was viewed as front-runner as he received nominations from 9 regional organisations while Pikal and Ferjenčík only one nomination each.[2]

Voting

Voting took place on 11 January 2020. Every member of the party was allowed to vote. In the first round voters marked which candidates are acceptable for them. Candidates with more than 50% would advance to the second round. Bartoš and Pikal advanced while Ferjenčík was eliminated.[3] Pikal then withdraw his candidacy so the second round wasn't held and Bartoš was reelected.[4]
