Elections 2021 | Bohumil Pečinka: Will Andrej Babiš be the Prime Minister?

Andrej Babiš must have had the greatest joy from this discussion. Above all, he managed to suppress the Pandora Papers affair, which is being talked about all over Europe. One day it will be revealed why Nova’s dramaturgy did not include this crucial thing as one of the questions. There is too much of a high game of patriots behind it. The fact that the largest television station did not open this case contributed to its burial in the pit of oblivion. At least from the point of view of the Czech parliamentary elections.

Otherwise, Prime Minister Babiš strengthened his position as the Defender of Stability. In eight years, the debt state has co-created prosperity for retirees and civil servants. If he rules, he will continue to feel the limits of his budget deficits, which are bubbling in the form of inflation. Its passivity during the European Council will in turn help to increase energy costs and other things. In one thing, he was brilliant throughout the campaign, at least in terms of political marketing. He was able to accurately identify the weaknesses of the pirate program, illuminate them, and create a major ideological enemy. He exaggerated a number of things, but he was also right in large.

For the first time, pirates, illuminated not only by television cameras, but directly by powerful searchlights, collapsed under this blow. Tragic was especially their bet “Bartoš for prime minister”, to which they subordinated their election campaign and themes. Programmatically, they castrated themselves in such a way that they were no longer attractive even to their voters from 2017. It is not tragic to be wrong, but to insist on a mistake. Unfortunately, the Pirates were unable to make a maneuver from the Prime Minister Bartoš’s strategy to the presentation of his typically conception of the world. So they programmatically sanded themselves to be acceptable to the middle classes and ceased to be pirates.

This was also shown in the debate on TV Nova. If the prime minister is constantly beating them on the head and they are unable to repay him, then they do not deserve to win. These fights are training for much larger fights within the European Commission and other institutions, where politicians must defend the national interest. If they cannot resist Babiš, they would not be able to resist Commission Vice-President Timmermans. That’s just the way it is.

Petr Fiala benefited most from the middle position between the upset prime minister, who is unacceptable to an influential part of society, and the defensive and weakened Ivan Bartoš. Fiala is really a calm force, which can impress parts of the population in the Babiš-Bartoš confrontation.

But one thing remains a mystery. Games of Messrs. Koranteng, Bartoš and Fiala as if. To pretend that everything is fine, so it’s actually okay with the gangster-acting prime minister to seriously address the pension reform, which he hasn’t even touched on in eight years of government. No, Babiš is not a politician and he should not play a game on political topics. Babiš went too far in his private business and his connection with the state. He behaves like an oligarch of the Russian type, who is interested in only two things: Agrofert and subsidies from the state, and not to be arrested for his activities. It is not possible to play premiere games with such a person, which only cleanse him in the eyes of other people. If he is re-elected prime minister, it will be a heavy blow, for which the Czech opposition will bear the main responsibility.
