Mushroom versus Babiš
Regarding the state’s plan to build a complex for officials on the land, Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (YES) previously argued with Mayor Zdeněk Hřib (Pirates). In the past, the premiere called on the municipality’s leadership to transfer its land in Letňany to the state. The city resisted, Hřib rejected the idea of an “official ghetto” and made the transfer of land to the state conditional on a number of conditions, such as a financial contribution to the completion of the city ring road. The ongoing negotiations followed, including exchanges of buildings and land between the city and the state, and the state’s promise to contribute 60 billion to the city to complete the city ring road. This year, there was also the possibility that the state could take over the completion completely, but no decision has been made yet.
