224 delegates voted for Jurečka, 30 abstained, 14 were against. Another seven delegates voted incorrectly in the electronic election, according to the representatives of the election commission, when they did not fill in any election and only confirmed the vote.

“What I said is true. It is a difficult time and we have to add more gas to do our job better, because people expect it from us,” he said after the election of Jureček.

In January 2020, former Minister of Agriculture Jurečka, at the head of KDU-ČSL, replaced Výborný, who then left the position for family reasons. He led the People’s Party into government when, together with the ODS and TOP 09 in the Together coalition, they won last year’s parliamentary elections. He won the positions of Minister of Labor, Agriculture and the Environment in the government. He received a nomination for party leader Jureček in nine regions.

Jan Bartošek, the deputy chairman of the Chamber of Deputies and the party, is running for the first vice-chairman, and Senator Šárka Jelínková will try to defend herself. Five people have nominations for ordinary vice-presidents, in addition to Bartošek and Jelínková, the current vice-president and deputy mayor of Brno Petr Hladík, deputy Tom Philipp and deputy governor of Moravia-Silesia Lukáš Curylo.

According to Jurečka, the People’s Party should work so that they can rule for at least eight years

According to its chairman, Deputy Prime Minister Marian Jurečka, the KDU-ČSL should work so that the coalition government defends its mandate in the next elections and can implement its plans conceptually for at least eight years. Jurečka said this today at the Congress of Christian Democrats in Ostrava. In his speech, he summarized the path of the People’s Party to the electoral coalition with the ODS and TOP 09 and later the government entity, which this coalition formed under the banner Together with the Mayors and Pirates last year.

Jurečka expressed regret that the four-party coalition, ie a group in which the Mayors would also play, failed to form last year’s parliamentary elections. According to him, the cooperation in the coalition with the ODS and TOP 09 was able to reach voters in a wider spectrum than the individual parties would succeed, while each of these entities strengthened, not weakened.

According to Jurečka, the People’s Party must consider winning 23 seats in the parliamentary elections as a tool for solving citizens’ problems, looking for reasonable solutions not only for the moment, but also for the future. “It is up to us to continue in four years,” he said. He added that the government needed at least eight years for long-term and systematic change.

Jurečka recalled the words of the first deputy chairman of the ODS, Minister of Finance Zbyněk Stanjura, when he defended his mandate at the Congress of Civic Democrats. He said at the time that the ambitions of the Civic Democrats should be to win the next parliamentary elections and rule for eight years. He led the coalition into the election as an election manager and emphasized that the three parties had managed to keep a cool head throughout the campaign.
