Bohumil Doležal: Presidential Prime Minister Andrej Babiš

It is possible to say in advance that he succeeded with a number of competent observers: for example, the uncrowned head of the incoming opposition Petr Fiala praised him for stepping back from his usual confrontational style and hopes that politeness, respect for other opinions and reasonable discussion return to politics. . Political scientist Ladislav Mrklas praised his helpfulness and objectivity, and Josef Mlejnek from Charles University also praised the helpfulness of his speech. I envy their optimism.

Andrej Babiš emphasizes that in the past our republic and our nation were able to cope with much worse periods, when it was really bad, and they were always able to stick together. He therefore hopes that the nation will continue to fight for Czech interests even under the new governments and raise the living standards of its citizens (“as was the case under my governments” remains only in the subtext).

The Czech Republic will remain (as it was for me, again only in the subtext) one of the least indebted EU states, will strongly defend national interests and will not be afraid to use the right of veto (dtto). So far, the task of a new government: to defend national interests until the rupture of the body and not to save allies unnecessarily.

And most importantly, Mr Babiš would very much like politicians to see themselves as rivals, not as enemies. I am a little sorry that he missed the opportunity at a time when he was leading hate fights, for example against Miroslav Kalousek (see, for example, the famous extempore in the Chamber of Deputies). Now he has the opportunity to set an example and apologize as a guy. His PR team will hopefully advise him on how to do it.

The task that Mr Babiš has set for us is a challenging one. I admit that, for example, among the commands that my convictions give me is not that one must not have enemies, but only that one should love them. It is very difficult, especially when it comes to those who have been ruthlessly ravaging democracy here for eight years. Fortunately, there is also a soft version of the command, associated with the name of TG Masaryk: if we are not yet so perfect, we should at least be fair to them.

So I will try to love Mr. Babiš. It will probably take some time, but I will certainly stay with the Masaryk justice. And I’m very interested in how he will do it with Mr. Kalousek.
