Presidential candidates Petr Pavel and Andrej Babiš agreed today in a debate on the server on the need for the existence of the Senate, a meeting with the Dalai Lama, or that they would not pardon Jana Nečasová, formerly Nagyová, the wife of former Prime Minister Petr Nečas (ODS). On the contrary, they clashed over the way the campaign was conducted and over security issues.

The debate was originally supposed to take place on Monday, but due to Pavlo’s illness, it was moved to this morning.

During the hour-long discussion, the manner of conducting the campaign and the issue of the war in Ukraine became an important topic. Babiš said that he is running a positive campaign, he called helping people his main slogan. He admitted that he the confrontational press conference after the announcement of the results of the first round of elections failed, he reasoned with emotion. For the statement from Sunday’s discussion on Czech TV that he would not send troops to help Poland and the Baltic states also indicated a mistake, if they were attacked by Russia. As president, he would like to connect the government and opposition camps.

Babiš accused Pavel’s supporters, who go to his meetings with voters, of being aggressive. According to Pavel, aggressiveness is not caused by him and his voters, but by Babiš in the long term, through his expression or the way he characterized his opponents. He said that Babiš sowed the wind, fertilized it for a long time, and now he is surprised when a storm comes and feels threatened. Pavel insists on slogans from election billboards, according to him, Babiš repeatedly lied and proved in politics that he is a chaotic micromanager.

Both candidates agreed that Czechoslovakia should have defended itself against Nazi Germany in 1938. Babiš is convinced that the allies would eventually come to the aid of the country, he would expect help from Poland. According to Pavel, Czechoslovakia was stronger than Finland, which was able to defend itself against an attack from the Soviet Union for several months. In connection with aid from Poland, he recalled its occupation of the Czech part of Těšínsk.

Pavel considers it a mistake that the considered American radar was not created in the Czech Republic, Babiš rejected its construction. On the contrary, they agreed that the airport in Líny near Pilsen should not be disrupted or that the Senate should not be abolished. As president, Babiš would go to the Chamber of Deputies to discuss the budget, Pavel to discuss important laws. Both refused for President Miloš Zeman to appoint a new president of the Constitutional Court even before he leaves office. According to Babiš, it would not be appropriate, Pavel would probably challenge such a procedure at the Supreme Administrative Court. Neither would pardon the Timeless.
