One of the candidates for the post of chairman of the Social Democrats, Jan Hamáček, says entering a coalition with Andrej Babiš of ANO could be the “least worst” option. Speaking in an interview with iDnes.cz, he said his party, who came sixth in the general elections, were currently faced only with bad decisions or worse ones.
President Miloš Zeman favours a situation under which ANO would form a minority coalition with the Social Democrats supported by the Communists or Freedom and Direct Democracy.
Mr. Hamáček said he could not imagine his party cooperating in any way with the latter. As for the Communists, he said they could not question Czech membership of NATO if they were involved with a pro-European ANO-Social Democrats government.
