Deputy Prime Minister Jan Hamáček of the Social Democrats has said he will not challenge the fact that Prime Minister Andrej Babiš is to chair the government’s council for coordinating the fight against corruption.
The opposition Pirate Party vehemently protested against Babiš taking up this position saying that not only was the prime minister charged on suspicion of abusing EU funds, but he and his ANO party had blocked the approval of several anti-corruption amendments in the lower house.
Hamáček said it was the prime minister’s right to chair the council and he would not challenge him on that ground.
