ANO Unanimous in Support for Babis as PM
The ANO National Committee has unanimously supported the re-nomination of its Prime Minister Andrej Babiš as Prime Minister, announced the leadership of the party on Monday evening at a press conference. ANO wants to continue with the parties for a coalition or support. The leadership of the movement also called on members and sympathizers to elect President Milos Zeman. “We consider him an experienced politician, we identify with his attitude,” Jaroslav Faltýnek, the Vice-President of the Czech Republic, said.
Last night, Prime Minister in resignation and ANO boss Andrei Babiš admitted the debate about the person of the next cabinet chief, but a day later he said otherwise.
“I just made it clear that people did not feel that my whole life was my dream to be a prime minister,” he told reporters after the meeting of the House of Commons on European Affairs. The government without him is not one of his options.
“It’s a question for the ANO. I did not dream of being a prime minister, but I went to the elections. Of course this is a debate … There is no law that I have to be there , the ANO has to decide, “said Babiš on Wednesday in an interview for Czech Television.
Asked whether Deputy Prime Minister Richard Brabec could replace him, the head of the ANO movement replied: “I’m telling him, but he’s got a lot of stress.”
On Thursday, he declared the ruling ANO party without his presence in the cabinet as “unnecessary speculation.” “I just made it clear that people did not feel that my whole life was my dream to be a prime minister,” the reporter told reporters Thursday after the meeting of the House of Commons on European Affairs.
Babiš’s government did not get the confidence last week and hand over to the president this week. Miloš Zeman said earlier that the leadership ANO will be commissioned by the government by the government for the second time. Unlike his first attempt, he will want guaranteed votes of at least 101 MPs who will support the new government team.
