Elections 2021 | Sensation in Prague. Babiš lost power in the nerve-wracking election, they write in the world
“Sensation in Prague,” writes the headline of the Austrian daily Courier. He continues by saying that “Czech Prime Minister Babiš has been punished”. “All eyes are now on the unhealthy, wayward president, Milos Zeman,” he said. He also reminds his readers that Zeman announced before the election that he would entrust the formation of a government to the leaders of the strongest party, not the coalition.
Win the elections in the low form of TOTAL, which consists of the ODS, KDU-ČSL and TOP 09. The Austrian newspaper describes it as a “bourgeois liberal group”. The coalition of Pirates and Mayors, which finished third in the election, is then described as “brave”. He also writes about the fiasco of the CSSD and the KSCM. She did not get into parliament for the first time since the fall of the regime to Kurier.
The opposition in the Czech Republic and can form a government, so according to the Slovak media, the Czech Republic is probably waiting for political change. “It seemed that Andrej Babiš would find a difficult attempt at a turnaround, but it was not enough for him to remain at the head of the Czech government. Half a year ago, it seemed unlikely that he would at least compete for victory, but two opposition blocs are well on their way to forming the next government, “the paper writes. Truth.
Diary N he called the election dramatic. “However, perhaps the fact that neither of the parties of the KSČM, the CSSD and the Přísaha movement won five percent for the entry into parliament was perhaps even more important for Andrej Babiš to remain in the position of prime minister,” the letter wrote. He added that Babiš, a native of Bratislava, has no end as the Prime Minister of the Czech Republic.
Daily We are then he believes that even if the Czechia did not choose the change, it has it. “The composition of parliament is crucial, and that speaks of change. As usual, sometimes the key is the votes for the parties that failed. It is still true that most Czech voters jump on populist waves, “he wrote.
He added that the Czechia has a chance that instead of populists, the government will be headed by a professor, former university rector, leader of the TOTAL coalition Petr Fiala, who weighs words. According to Slovak analyst Grigory Mesežnikov, the Czech vote must also make a fundamental change in political development.
The left has been defeated, says a Slovak analyst
“The Czech left, social democratic and communist, suffered defeat,” Mesežnikov said. He expects that the coalition of TOGETHER and the Pirates with the Mayors, which will be larger in the House, will eventually agree to form a government. That would have to cause Babiš’s political defeat, says Mesezhnikov, who is president of the Bratislava Institute for Public Affairs (IVO).
So far, the governing CSSD, as well as the KSČM, which tolerated the current Babiš government, fell out of the Chamber for the first time since the establishment of an independent Czech Republic, and according to Mesežnikov, it helped both coalitions. “A comfortable majority that we will have a coalition that will change the government,” Mesezhnikov said. He added that the new government would be pro-European and pro-Atlantic.
According to Mesežnikov, the mentioned majority of both coalitions in the Chamber of Deputies together with public opinion will push for the post-election development in the country to correspond to the result of the voters’ vote. Before the election, President Miloš Zeman announced that he would give the chairman of the winning party or movement, not a coalition, a chance to form a government cabinet.
According to the IVO president, the departure of the hitherto government movement into the opposition would probably mean the end of the current Czech prime minister as a strong politician and leave whether Babiš would remain in politics at all. “I can’t imagine him staying in the position of a loser politician given how ambitious he is. I can’t imagine him sitting in a parliamentary seat as an ordinary member of parliament, “he said.
It will depend on Zeman, the Poles say
The Polish media also comment on the results of the elections as a surprise defeat of Babiš. Note, however, that it will still depend on Babiš’s ally, President Miloš Zeman, who will form the government. “Changing the winner in the finish lines,” we recommend news television TVN 24.
She emphasized that the current opposition parties were able to overtake the YES movement, which initially led the vote. “The results testify to the historical defeat of the Communists in Bohemia. For the first time since 1989, the KSČM will not have its deputies in parliament. The results are relentless even for social democracy. The party that has so far participated in the government will end up outside the parliament, “TVN remarked.
Please also note that the Czechia is another country in the European Union where two-day elections take place – and in this way parliament, the president, local governments and Czech MEPs are elected.
“Babiš’s YES movement loses a hair with the center-right coalition TOGETHER,” the opposition newspaper writes Gazeta Wyborcza and adds that even in the event of a close victory, the prime minister’s party would not be able to form a government. According to the daily, the Czechs celebrated Babiš’s defeat by tapping their pints of beer in Prague pubs – it was the voters from Prague where the votes count the longest that sealed Babiš’s defeat: in the metropolis Babiš’s YES ended up third.
According to the daily, the prime minister suffered a significant defeat. Not only will he not be able to rule on his own, but he will not form a coalition with the SPD of Tomia Okamura, previously the coalition TOGETHER with the Pirates will have a stable majority, perhaps up to 109 seats.
“But who will rule the Czech Republic will depend on President Miloš Zeman. In theory, the task of forming a government should be to entrust the winning group. However, it is not certain what decision will be made by this long-time ally of Andrej Babiš, “stressed Gazeta Wyborcza, who pointed out in another article that” not only Babiš’s political future is at stake, but also personal freedom “.
An exciting battle with close adherence, the Germans write
The German media also evaluate the result as a surprise. List South German newspaper he wrote about the election result that, according to current figures, Babiš’s YES is no longer the largest political force in the country.
“The Czech elections brought a surprise, the head of government Babiš came at the expense of the opposition for the majority. Until the last moment, it was an exciting fight for the party of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš with a close result, “the German media group informed about the events in the Czech Republic RND. She also quoted a statement from the ODS chairman that a change was taking place.
Although they will have a TOTAL and a second coalition formed by the Pirates and the Mayors and Independents (STAN) movement in parliament, there is a risk of a stalemate, according to the RND. “President Miloš Zeman has repeatedly emphasized in the past that he will entrust the formation of a government not to a coalition, but to the strongest party. And that will in any case be Babiš’s populist movement YES, because TOGETHER they form three parties, “the group states.
Take DPA she noted that the president had nothing to do with his support for Babiš, who could expect Zeman to form a government. “The president cares about a lot,” we will say Tagesschau public television ARD, which also puts a surprising finish in connection with the Pandora Papers affair, which, among other things, revealed Babiš’s opaque real estate purchases.
RND readers also point out that Babiš was reached before the election by the affair of older property purchases in southern France through offshore companies. The diary warns of the same scandal The world.
He then follows the US elections in the Czech Republic CNN, which describes the competition as “nerve-racking” with reference to the very close difference that divides the parties in the first and second place.
