Babiš has not yet reached an agreement with the governors in a state of emergency

According to Babiš, the governors will meet with the Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES) on Sunday from 10:00, both parties will bring their epidemic experts. They will discuss measures that, in the opinion of the governors, are not correct or logical. The chairman of the Association of Regions Martin Kuba (ODS) and the heads of all regional hygienic stations will also be invited to the subsequent meeting of the government at 14:00. According to Babiš, the cabinet should decide on measures so that citizens know as soon as possible what rules will apply from Monday.

According to the Crisis Act, the governor may declare a state of danger for all or part of the region. If it is not possible to effectively avert the threat in this state, the Cabinet should immediately request the Cabinet to declare a state of emergency. Babiš stated that the governors at today’s meeting talked about the fact that they could ask the cabinet for 14 or 30 days of emergency. “There were various statements, we asked for the request to be uniform,” he said. He hopes that all governors will be in a state of emergency so that the measures can apply equally throughout the republic.

Blatný will present a pandemic law to the cabinet on Monday, which should facilitate the operation of measures without a state of emergency. Babiš wants to discuss coronavirus measures again with leaders of opposition parties from Tuesday. “It is a repeated request of opposition parties,” he said of the draft law. “He would like the opposition to accept the invitation on Tuesday, so that it is one of the key topics for us to adopt this law,” the prime minister said.

Babiš called Saturday’s meeting constructive. “We have moved on, we have exchanged views on existing measures,” he said. The Governor of the Moravian-Silesian Region, Ivo Vondrák (YES), said that if the government declared a new state of emergency, it agreed with the governors to discuss its new conditions and new measures.

But even today, the governors are not completely united in whether they should ask the government to declare another state of emergency, said the South Moravian governor Jan Grolich (KDU-ČSL). He expected a more constructive approach from the government, lacking concrete suggestions on how to envision a state of emergency. “We really did not expect the government to come up with a completely zero proposal,” Grolich said.
