What is the fate of the Czech government? While CSSD, in response to the scandal of Andrej Babis and his son's testimony to the Transmission List, is unstable, the opposition head of the SPD Tomio Okamura is clear: he does not believe in journalists, Babis. That is why he is ready to support his government if the social democrats leave.
On Tuesday, you stood alongside other presidents of the opposition parties and announced that you were casting distrust of the government of Andrei Babis. But on Wednesday you said you were ready to support Andrei Babiš's government. Can you explain what the SPD opinion is?
This opinion does not change. We have signed an extraordinary meeting where we will vote for distrust of the government. The reason is clear: we want the end of the government, which includes CSSD. We refuse any government whose part is or will be harassed by CSSD and where its program is promoted. And it just happens. Andrej Babiš promotes Social Democratic program points and this is unacceptable to us, so every step that will lead to the end of the current order is the right direction for us.
Even your voters on the social networking site Facebook have written that they did not like seeing you at a press conference in the company of representatives of other opposition parties. They treated it as treason. What are you saying?
I absolutely disagree with the SPD and someone related to other people who stood there. The only intersection we've had is the end of the government. While others have a reason for Andrej Babiš, we have a reason for CSSD. Meeting with the media was a terrible experience for me. A state alongside Peter Fiali from ODS, parties about the spoiled past and the disoriented Pirates. Or, when the TOP TOP 09 representatives and mayors, Mr. Jiří Pospíšil and Vít Rakušan, chuckled on the microphone to enjoy the moment of glory. It was awful, as they were absolutely sorry that they were finally interested. I never want to have anything with these people. In general, they did not disappoint me and presented their personal opinions as a coincidence. These people just misused the Sting Nest Case for self-presentation.
But why CSSD really bothers you?
What should I start with? They increase inappropriate social benefits. They raise the earnings of politicians. Forced combat missions of Czech soldiers abroad. They refused to help people in debt traps, supporting a forbidden insolvency law that goes hand in hand with law enforcement. The referendum on staying in the European Union was also rejected. They add money to political non-profit organizations at the expense of pensions and pensions! For us, therefore, the government without CSSD is the highest priority. We want to replace the CSSD program with ours. Now is a good opportunity to do it.
Will Premier Babis remain the current situation?
But what about the current issue that the list of reports started?
We all know clearly that we are pushing for the Chase nest issue. But I completely refuse to pay attention to the reportage brought by the press crash of Jiří Kubík and Sabina Slonková. These two people are model journalistic hyenas. Notorious manipulators. I have personal experiences with them when they disturb my neighbors. When I am threatened by a woman from a residential building in which I live just before retirement. For a few days, they camped in front of my house, trying to catch a companion, and then they were hurt that they could not find … Everything they bring is not worth watching, let alone comments. I would really like to know for whom the work of these would-be investigative journalists and why.
Prime Minister Andrej Babiš invited you to meet four eyes. What exactly did he say?
The Prime Minister asked us about our program priorities and what are our ideas for his possible support. Of course, it made me happy and I wanted to tell him what he was trying to do. At the same time, I told him firmly that we do not want to be a government party, but we want to be part of the government structure. It was important to us that he now knows that he can count on us. So if it removes CSSD …
Is the person prosecuted in criminal proceedings against you?
It does not matter to any party in the House. You can not go to this game. The ODI Chairman Petr Fiala became Deputy Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies thanks to the YO movement directed by the accused prosecutor. The same applies to pirate Vojtech Pikal, a boy with no political experience. He did not resist the support of the criminal prosecutor's office.
Therefore, please answer. Can Andrej Babiš still be the prime minister despite the current scandal?
We prefer government experts. Let them choose Andrei Babiš. Even in YO movement. We just want the SPD to be included in the program statement. I will not be a demagogue and I will say firmly that Andrej Babiš may still be the prime minister. We have no problem with his support and we will not talk to him about the ministers. In the end, for example, Marta Nováková, the current industry minister, is certainly a man in her place. But this is the fastest closing of CSSD from ministries.
