Czech ANO leader says coalition, support from SPD not sought

ANO leader Andrej Babiš has said he is not seeking a coalition government or support from the Freedom and Direct Democracy Party (SPD) of leader Tomio Okamura.

Babiš was speaking Wednesday ahead of a meeting with Okamura aimed at mapping areas of agreement and difference on party programmes and policies.

One of the areas under discussion is expected to be the format of possible local referenda. The two parties have already clashed over what form future national referenda could take with ANO saying that a vote on leaving the EU should not be possible.
