ICP, 17 May 2017
Following the announcement of Bohuslav Sobotka of the resignation of his government,after a series of corruption allegations in relation to Finance Andrej Babiš, the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia (KSCM) had repeated its stance regarding the coalition government stating “The coalition government, composed by the Soc-Dem, the ANO movement and the Christian Democrats, in the political flap of mutual accusation of scandalous violation of the laws, will do no positive thing for Czech Republic henceforth.”
As the crisis goes deeper, KSCM proposed for the dissolution of the Chamber of Deputies and demanded early election.
Putting an emphasis on the attitude of deputies, KSCM underlined that deputies are more devoted to their governmental positions than the interests of the people.
In this context, KSCM stated, “The issues being the subjects of coalition partners’ quarrels, have very little to do with those interests. Neither the Parliament’s last session held in May 10, has changed anything in this fact; it not only didn’t resolve the governmental crisis, but, contrary, the crisis has become both deepen and sharpen by it. It has been explicitly stated in the Resolution passed by the Czech Parliament’s Lower House. The situation is beyond the pale, changing Czech Republic’s citizens into the hostages in the scandalous clashes, destroying also the reputation of the country abroad.”
The KSCM also called all Parliamentary parties to “make a vote of no confidence towards current government”.
