'Putin's slut!' Female protestor strips off as Czech President casts vote

Presidential elections tests the power Euro scepticism and anti-immigrant sentiment in the Czech Republic

Czech polling stations opened Friday for a presidential vote that continues Saturday and pits the anti-Muslim, pro-Russian and pro-Chinese incumbent Zeman against more liberal pro-European rivals.

Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said at a press conference on Thursday that he will support current President Milos Zeman in the forthcoming direct presidential election. Zeman added, he was "honored to be attacked by a member of the Femen movement, which has also attacked the pope".

She threw her hands in the air, exposing the same slogan written across her chest before the president's bodyguards immediately knocked her to the floor.

She shouted in English: "Zeman - Putin's slut". "The Czech Republic needs a fearless president who will not be intimidated!"

Britain can not sign any trade agreements until after it has left the European Union , expected around March 2019. He said: "It is not the main event and at the moment the government is making a hash of that".

If no candidate wins a majority in the first round, which analysts are expecting, the top two finishers will face off in a runoff on January 26-27.

"As you can see, my security detail works quite well because she did not get to me", said the Czech president.

Mr Zeman's derogatory comments about groups ranging from refugees to journalists are a feature of his "man-of-the-people" style, which is popular with many Czechs but has brought him few invitations to western capitals in recent years. A convergence of Zeman with Okamura was debated in the past.

Zeman is facing eight challengers, with opinion polls showing his most serious opponent is Jiri Drahos, a chemistry professor and two-time president of the Czech Academy of Sciences.
