The Social Democrats have nominated former finance minister Pavel Mertlík for European commissioner, but their government partner, the ANO movement, is pushing for its European Parliament (EP) election leader Pavel Telička, who already held the post in 2004. PM Bohuslav Sobotka, ČSSD chairman, says Telička, a former lobbyist, is not a suitable candidate, while deputy PM and Finance Minister Andrej Babiš, the ANO chairman, says Mertlík does not have any Brussels experience.
