Final Word from Monday, August 4, 2014

Throughout its history as a party, ČSSD has generally known what it wants and what it stands for. This is changing under Bohuslav Sobotka. Everywhere you turn, there are now reports about how Sobotka is weak and irresolute as a leader. He tries to counter this by going against his nature and lashing out selectively at Miloš Zeman and Andrej Babiš. One such outburst came on Sat. in Deník, when he ventured that ANO "has no firm opinion and looks for pragmatic solutions based on the situation of the moment." And therein lies the solution that Sobotka and Babiš have been looking for! Sobotka is going to need an exit strategy after he leads ČSSD into a dismal performance in the fall elections, and Babiš is going to need a docile second-in-command when Věra Jourová departs for Brussels. Nowhere in the Czech Constitution is it written that the PM must resign his post if he switches his political party while in office. [Czech Republic Social Democrats municipal Senate]
