The Communist Party’s deputies group has rejected a call from ANO to replace their nominee for head of the commission that oversees the General Inspectorate of the Security Services, Zdeněk Ondráček. ANO made the call after presidential candidate Michal Horáček pointed out that the Communist Party MP had taken part in a clampdown on demonstrators during the 1989 Velvet Revolution as a member of a riot squad.
On Monday ANO’s second in command Jaroslav Faltýnek asked the Communists to come up with a different candidate for the post, which involves oversight of the police.
The Communist Party look set to help facilitate the establishment of a minority ANO government.
