Anti-EU rhetoric props up Czech election race

Vít Dostál Vít Dostál / Ed. 18. 11. 2017

The Czech government's decision on Monday (5 June) to stop taking asylum seekers from Greece and Italy is the latest sign of the development of an anti-EU stance in the country, with the elections approaching in October. Babis is set to profit on the development.

“Babis has moved from a relatively pro-European position, he had taken before the last elections in 2013, towards the current harsh anti-EU rhetoric,” said Vit Dostal.

At the same time, “Babis is not going to be another [Jaroslaw] Kaczynski or [Viktor] Orban,” noted Dostal, referring to the chairman of Poland’s ruling Law and Justice Party and the Hungarian prime minister.
