"The ANO chairman should wake up from his dream about a minority, one-party government and he should start working normally, work on building a government with majority support in parliament", Petr Fiala, head of the centre-right Civic Democrats said.
About 200 people gathered in the Czech capital on Tuesday protesting against billionaire Andrej Babis, who was proposed by incumbent Czech President Milos Zeman to form the government.
16 de enero de 2018, 14:01Prague, Jan 16 (PL) Charged with fraud with European funds, the Czech Prime Minister, Andrej Babis, requested today that Parliament withdraw immunity to defend himself against the charges against him. His government of ANO members and independent experts was appointed last month.
Potential coalition partners were wary of supporting Andrej Babis after he was charged with European Union subsidy fraud. Babis repeatedly rejected the idea, but this morning he announced that he would ask the Chamber to strip him of his immunity.
That makes a vote by the full legislature, which if passed would trigger a reopening of the fraud probe against him, likely in coming days. He said the president would play a crucial role in the process of the formation of the next government. He is fighting for the post with academic Jiri Drahos. He will face a challenger in the runoff scheduled for January 26-27.
Mr. Zeman himself is now in a battle for his own job.
Nearly three months after Czech billionaire Andrej Babis' party dominated elections without winning an outright majority, his government quit after failing to secure approval in parliament because of concerns he may be charged over alleged fraud.
Further developments will depend on the result of the presidential election, Belobradek told journalists.
The constitution also allows Babis's cabinet to continue as a fully-fledged government despite the no-confidence vote. He will lead a caretaker administration until another government can be formed.
"Until now, we have seen power games of Babis and Zeman who want to keep in power as much as possible, but it is not to the benefit of the citizens", Farsky said.
Opposition parties have said they are ready to talk about joining a coalition, with some of them only willing to come to the table if Babis was not prime minister.
Babis set up a cabinet without consulting any partners, which was a waste of time, Chvojka said. The Prague Daily Monitor is not responsible for its content.
