Czech Parliamentary Elections: A New Order

Company: Grayling Czech Republic, s.r.o.

This weekend, the Czechs casted their votes in general elections and to a surprise This weekend, Czechs cast their votes in a general election and, to the surprise of many, the country has followed the latest international trend by turning its back on the political establishment.

Despite having just served a full election term as part of the government, Mr Babiš managed to convince the electorate that he represents the anti-establishment wing against the “old dinosaur”, and blamed everyone else for waging a “massive campaign of disinformation against the ANO movement".
