Anatomy of the House Election or Is There a Better Candidate Than a Double Minister for YES?

True, not the whole movement, but above all Karel Havlíček. Formally, he has only been a member of YES for a few months, but he was still one of its most prominent exponents in the government. And not only because, in addition to the Deputy Prime Minister, he also held the positions of Minister of Industry and Trade and Head of the Ministry of Transport. And now he had to run for the newly formed Chamber of Deputies.

“I did not want to accumulate anything. I have the constitutional right to run. And according to most constitutional lawyers, I should have run, “he choked and defended himself in Sunday’s debate on Czech Television. Soon he was talking only about a “number” of lawyers. In addition, there is the opinion of the legislative department of the Chamber of Deputies, according to which the candidacy was not possible due to the unfinished government engagement. But these are subordinations…

The main thing is fogging and argumentative detours. On the one hand, Karel Havlíček admits that he wanted to respect the parliamentary vote – a new majority refused to let him run for president – but at the same time he complains about trampling on his rights.

“I take this as a decision of the House. However, this does not mean that we have no other legal interpretations and that we do not feel that we have been denied constitutional law, “he tried to explain in Sunday’s debate on the Czech Television. But the real moment to think for a long time was his next thought: “At the moment, we pay a lot of attention to formality and don’t care what form we actually get to achieve that goal.”

The outgoing Deputy Prime Minister and Deputy Prime Minister argue, among other things, that he is quite possibly denied basic human rights, namely the right to run for election office. And will he want to file a constitutional complaint because of that? Here, too, he offered the audience a lot of room to think: “I wouldn’t say we’re thinking, we’re getting to know it today. It is true that a huge number of people write to us, constitutional lawyers also write to us ’”

Similarly, the issue of the next election, this time the remaining Deputy Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, will have to remain tense. So will Karel Havlíček run for at least this position? “Direct question, indirect answer. We have to consult about it at the club and we have to agree on the next steps. ”So the decisive maybe…

And why the uncertainty? Here, too, there is a clear explanation, see the next answer to a similar question about the next candidacy: “Unless we find a better candidate. If we find one, I will be the first to support him. “

And if no better candidate were found, would Karel Havlíček resign from his government office? Again a bit of a puzzle: “We would have to find out what it’s like now. Because we’re in resignation now. And the question is what can or cannot be done in that resignation. “

Fortunately, in addition to the questions, there are clear answers. For example, reassurance that everything will depend solely on the YES elected representatives in the lower house, because: “Andrej Babiš is not the whole parliamentary group.” our goal is not to destabilize anything. “

And above all, the unquestionable fact that Karel Havlíček summed up in Sunday’s debate on ČT with the words: “It is an interesting case…” Yes, it is.
