So satisfaction prevails so far? Will the goal that you represent, i.e. three thousand municipal representatives, be fulfilled?
The real one is. We are really successful in the smaller municipalities, we are able to defend our positions there. The number of representatives combined with the coalitions we are in will certainly not be small. And that’s the most important number.
So will it be three thousand?
Of course, this is such a maximalist goal, and I will hope that we will get closer to that number. At least that’s how it seems so far.
I hope that chaos will end at the municipality, says the head of the Prague organization ANO Prokop
And in the Senate do you maintain the position of the second strongest club?
We’ll see. They wanted to defend the number of senators we have. But it will be very challenging. There are very strong personalities in many constituencies. However, the STAN club will certainly remain a large club in the Senate, which is also due to the fact that we only advocate in five constituencies. The club as such will be one of the biggest anyway.
Your former Senate Vice President Jiří Růžička is running with the joint candidate TOP 09 and STAN. Will he remain in your senatorial club if he wins?
This will be discussed by the leadership of our senatorial club. But if Jiří Růžička defends his mandate, and it looks very optimistic so far, then the offer will definitely fall through.
How does the STAN movement stand after the recent scandals of your politicians in Prague?
The situation in Prague is different from the rest of the Czech Republic. Not only because of the thing you mentioned, but also because we are running alone for the first time.
And what is your goal? What would be success?
To have a representative club, to be in the Prague council. We want to enter there under the STAN brand.

But do you admit that you did not have an ideal starting position in Prague?
If you reach the cause of your movement, which is connected with one particular municipal politician, which was the case, then of course you have to make an effort in the election campaign.
Did your leader Petr Hlaváček try hard enough?
We managed to make many changes so that we could reach the voters again. We gave Petar Hlaváček, who bravely remained the leader of our Prague candidate, the opportunity to rebuild the candidate according to his ideas. On it, no one who would be today is in any way associated with anything nefarious. They are people who have experience of working in urban areas, they have different expertise. We offered a quality program, a quality leader, and quality candidates. And above all, we showed people in the Czech Republic what political culture is. This means taking responsibility if things go really badly for you.
