Vít Dostál (AMO) and Milan Nič, German Council on Foreign Relations (DGAP), co-authored a new briefing paper analyzing the Czech election result.
“The Czech election result seems worrying at first: Yet another populist leader has been catapulted into power in Central Europe. But billionaire Andrej Babiš and his populist ANO party, which received almost 30 percent of the vote, is not necessarily going to push the Czech Republic into an illiberal and anti-EU direction.”
The authors compare Babiš with other Central European leaders and examine possible scenarios, Czech foreign and EU policy under an ANO-led government, and the future of Czech-German relations.
The paper was published with kind support of the Czech-German Future Fund.
