As expected, Fiala remained the only candidate for the head of the Civic Democrats, whom he has been since January 2014. He received nominations from all 14 regions.

In a speech before her re-election, Fiala presented three priorities for the next two years. These are the refugee crisis, geopolitics and energy security.

“We are facing the biggest refugee wave since World War II and the people of Ukraine are coming to us now fearing for their lives,” Fiala said, adding that they were not economic migrants.

According to him, the Czech Republic must also be an important player on the international field. “Russia’s aggression will change the world and change the situation in Europe. Now relations between states will be re-established for the next decades, “he said.

Fiala also spoke out against unresolved dependence on fossil fuels from Russia. “I want our government to come up with a comprehensive five-year project in the coming weeks, the aim of which will be to ensure the energy security of the Czech Republic,” he added.
