Andrej Babiš’s statement that there could be early elections if his second attempt to form a government fails was intended to prepare the ground for a fresh round of talks, according, Milan Chovanec. The acting chairman of the Social Democrats said the PM in resignation’s words could be understood as a threat aimed at ensuring such talks proved fruitful.
Speaking on the same TV debate show as Mr. Chovanec on Sunday, the chairman of TOP 09, Jiří Pospíšil, said Mr. Babiš’s comments in a newspaper interview on Saturday were a tactical move aimed at pushing the Social Democrats into a corner.
