The Czech political scene crystallized in such a way that there was simply no other option for pushing Babiš and his party away from the state’s scumbags than the choice of parties and movements that united against him. What more. Even now, after a number of months and after a number of steps by the new government and after the gnashing of teeth that is heard here and there from the camp of supporters of Fial’s cabinet, most of those who voted for these parties in the last time agree that there is no acceptable alternative for occupying the House of Representatives not available.
But people are not robots. Even if they can suppress dissatisfaction, even anger, with reason and tell themselves that nothing can be done at the moment, emotions do their job and eat away at the soul anyway. Without going too far, I will mention a few gripes. Traditionally, there is an aversion to the Pirates due to being too radical, although it seems anachronistic, since the government Pirates mainly work in their places and do not come up with any fads. Therefore, it is not the main controversy that is associated with the coalition of five.
It is different with the comments that fall mainly on the heads of the ODS and the People’s Party. It refers to sticking to patterns that once applied and which many representatives of these parties would like to incorporate into the current life of the Czech Republic. In practice, this has three tangible points in which the position of government entities gives the impression that they have a weakness for expired canned goods.
First, it’s disapproval marriage for all. Secondly, it is the non-ratification of Istanbul conventions on the prevention and fight against violence against women and domestic violence. Thirdly, it is benevolence towards Putin’s serving in the EU and NATO, i.e. Orbán’s Hungary. This benevolence arouses the legitimate suspicion that the Hungarian development is to the taste of the mentioned politicians.
However, the repressed anger that the coalition, which has no alternative, behaves like an old virgin unloved by modernity on these points, finds its way out not in the government, but next to it. Precisely because of these attitudes criticized the government is headed by President Petr Pavel. He is not bound by anything to the coalition of five, because these parties did not significantly support him in the campaign. As head of state, he is also entitled to a different opinion than the government.
With this attitude, Pavel began an independent journey. So far, we can only draw the conclusion that political life in the Czech Republic will be sufficiently varied.
