Final Word from Wednesday, October 20, 2021

One of the big victories in the parliamentary elections is to steer the CR away from the Hungarian and Polish paths. How is this miracle being achieved? First the Constitutional Court changed the electoral law so that small parties got a fairer shake ... with the result that a record 19.9% of votes for small parties were wasted. Then one of the election winners, KDU Chair Marian Jurečka, threatened to strip the president of his powers for making a "wrong" political decision about appointing a new prime minister. After the No. 3 constitutional official became suspected of helping to falsify the president's signature, a retired army general issued a document bulldozing the way to a peaceful transfer of power. The winning parties will now appoint themselves to run the country. Markéta Pekarová Adamová of 7% TOP 09 will choose the new PM. She told Respekt that the CR should not leave the Visegrad group and should instead use it to help reform Hungary and Poland. [ Czech Republic KDU-ČSL Radek Vondráček Miroslav Zavoral prime minister Miloš Zeman Vratislav Mynář Petr Fiala ]
