Czech Republic: Favourite to win «Czech Trump» casts ballot in presidential election

Leader of the ANO (‘Yes’) political party and MP Andrej Babis cast his vote for the Czech parliamentary elections in Prague on Friday afternoon. According to the polls, Babis’ political party is poised to win the elections with more than 25 percent of votes. After casting his ballot, Babis answered questions from some of the eighty journalists who had gathered to greet him. The Czech... Еще entrepreneur said that he stood against «standard political parties» and accused the current system of being corrupt. Local media has reported that Babis is the second-richest man in the country, owning a wide range of daily and online newspapers. Several European leaders have expressed their worries that in the case of Babis’ winning the elections, he may lead the Czech Republic to a more authoritarian style of government. Earlier in October, Slovakia’s constitutional court resumed an investigation on whether Babis collaborated with the Czechoslovakia communist-era secret police (StB). Babis, who was born in Slovakia, claims that he never worked as an agent for the StB.
