Prime minister designate Andrej Babiš says he has drafted an outline of his minority government’s policy program. Babiš told Czech Television the main points were lower income tax, lower VAT on food products, higher pensions, digitalization of state administration and exemptions from the law on electronic cash registers for small entrepreneurs.
Babiš said that after he is appointed prime minister by President Zeman he would start seeking support or tolerance for his minority government across the political spectrum. The president said earlier he would appoint Babiš prime minister on December 6th and appoint his government on December 15th.
