One of the flagship measures of Minister of Finance and ANO leader Andrej Babiš has been passed by the lower house of parliament. The proposal on electronic cash registers, which would become obligatory for nearly all transactions, was passed after most opposition members from the centre-right Civic Democrats and TOP 09 quit the chamber in protest. The protest had been held up by stalling tactics for much of the last year by the opposition. They say the move amounts to a flawed extra burden on small business. The government argues it will dramatically curb tax evasion and the gray economy.
