Czechs bet on HZDS election score

THE CZECH lottery company Sazka has announced open betting on the results of Slovakia's September general election.

Bets can be made exclusively on the election result of the biggest opposition party, the Movement for a Democratic Slovakia (HZDS) led by controversial three-time Prime Minister Vladimír Mečiar. The odds are set at 3-1 if the HZDS reaches less than 21 per cent support, and 2.3-1 should the HZDS score more than 23 per cent.

Sazka did a similar lottery prior to the Czech general elections in June, in which people were allowed to bet on the scores of all Czech parties running in the elections. For the Slovak elections Sazka chose only the HZDS.

HZDS popularity suffered a blow in July when its voter preferences fell for the first time in over a decade to under 20 per cent.
