Prague, June 19 (CTK) – The ANO movement will demand technical modifications of the agreement of the Czech government parties that concern the convoking of coalition councils and the dates and programme of the meetings, ANO deputy chairman Jaroslav Faltynek told journalists tonight.
“We will want to specify some technical issues in the coalition agreement. We don’t want to change any of the programme issues,” Faltynek said after the ANO leadership meeting.
The government coalition of the Social Democrats (CSSD), ANO and the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) plans to deal with the changes in the coalition agreement on Wednesday, after Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka (CSSD) returns from China.
ANO also wants to assess and set the tasks that the government should fulfil by the general election due in the autumn next year.
Sobotka also said the priorities for the remaining year and a half should be defined.
“We are willing to talk about a supplement or specification (of the coalition agreement). We have not received any proposals,” Sobotka said today.
A government dispute between the CSSD and ANO broke out after Interior Minister Milan Chovanec (CSSD) announced a police reform that would merge two elite police units.
ANO said the CSSD wants to get rid of detectives dealing with cases in which CSSD representatives are involved. ANO leader Andrej Babis said Chovanec did not discuss the reform in the coalition. ANO even threatened to leave the government, but later took a more moderate position.
