AKIPRESS.COM - Czechs are voting in a two-day general election in which the favourite is a populist billionaire who has campaigned on an anti-establishment platform.
Andrej Babis, 63, is estimated to be worth $4 billion (£3bn) making him the country's second richest man, BBC reported.
His centrist ANO (Yes) party has a wide lead in the polls but is not expected to secure a majority.
Its current coalition partner, the centre-left Social Democrats (CSSD), is polling in second place.
Polls open at 14:00 local time (12:00 GMT) and close at 22:00 (20:00 GMT). They will open again on Saturday morning and close in the afternoon.
