Final Word from Wednesday, November 1, 2017

There's a paucity of true political analysis in the CR, and this is most visible just prior to and just after parliamentary elections. Often it's difficult to decipher what is a statement of fact, objective analysis, positive propaganda, negative propaganda or merely random blather. Into which category, for example, falls Pavel Rychetský's division today of the nine parties in Parliament into "democratic" and "non-democratic"? If this is meant as a statement of fact by the chief justice of the Constitutional Court, he should point to the appropriate court rulings that his statement relies upon. If it's an attempt on his part at objective political or legal analysis, he should explain which parties are violating the law on political parties and therefore need to be dissolved. If it's intentional propaganda, Rychetský should reveal whether he was speaking to HN in some capacity other than as the chief justice of the Constitutional Court. If it's random blather, he should keep it to himself. [Czech Republic chairman abolition abolish]
