Zeman regrets the loss of social democracy, not the communists. In Prague, he would like to see cooperation between ODS and ANO | iRADIO
The president regrets the loss of the Social Democrats, but not the Communists, because, according to him, they still haven’t come to terms with their past. The president based his assessment on a comparison of the number of results obtained by individual parties in the 2018 elections and this weekend.

“I feel sorry for Social Democracy, which in the last municipal elections won a total of five percent of the vote and now one percent,” said the president, adding that he likes to brag that he was the chairman of the ČSSD at a time when it went from seven to 32 percent.
“It is a big party, beautiful, but it has a completely incompetent leadership, because the success of any political party is measured by the ability of its leaders,” he stated.
According to Zeman, Czechs balance between the government parties and the opposition in municipal elections. “The government has not completely managed the energy crisis and inflation. I think that of course it harms her,” he said.
In Prague, the president would see the cooperation of the ODS and the ANO movement as the most stable coalition for the municipality. “However, I know that there are many prejudices,” stated Zeman, stating that, for example, the Social Democrats agreed with the ODS on the so-called opposition contract under his leadership.

“But that requires a certain foresight, a certain generosity,” he added. However, the winning coalition Spolu pro Praha, led by Bohuslav Svoboda (ODS), wants to discuss the coalition of the period that governs the state, i.e. the coalition Spolu s Piráty and STAN.
A person fleeing Russia is not a risk
According to Zeman, the Czech Republic should accept Russians fleeing mobilization. “A person fleeing Russia is not a security risk,” he said.
Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský (Pirates) said on Thursday that Russians who are fleeing the country because they want to avoid mobilization do not meet the conditions for granting a humanitarian visa in the Czech Republic. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced a partial mobilization on Wednesday.
Zeman said that he does not agree with Lipavský. “I think that we should give visas to these people, just like Ukrainian refugees,” he stated.
