Vladimir Franz looks more like a stand in for Darth Maul than a presidential candidate, with more than 90% of his body and face tattooed. In actual fact the Professor and Composer is one of the three key candidates in the run up for President of the Czech Republic. The two other guys he is up against are Milos Zeman and Jan Fischer. I could never imagine a guy like this in the run up for U.S. President or Prime Minister of the UK! I don’t know if that says more about prejudice or the state of politics in Czech Republic but it sure makes a change from your average pampered politician. I say good luck and may the force be with him.
