Babiš: party will choose presidential candidate in referendum


Finance Minister Andrej Babiš, the leader of the ANO party, has told the site he will not choose a candidate for the party to support for president, but that the successful candidate would be chosen from an inner-party referendum. No date for a referendum has been set. One name often mentioned as a possible candidate for ANO is Defence Minister Martin Stropnický, but the minister has declined and is heading the party’s candidate’s list in Prague in the upcoming elections to Parliament.
