Billionaire Finance Minister Andrej Babis’s party strengthened its sway over Czech politics after winning municipal elections in most of the country’s large cities. Babis, the second-richest Czech, and his ANO party won municipal ballots in 9 of 13 regional capitals three years after entering politics with a goal to displace traditional leaders he deemed inept. ANO won 22 percent of the vote in Prague, beating the opposition TOP09 party.
