Demonstrations against Prime Minister Andrej Babiš took place in Prague, Brno and over a dozen other towns and cities in the country on Monday night.
Several thousand people gathered on Wenceslas Square to call for Babiš’ resignation and protest against the fact that a politician who faces criminal charges has been tasked with forming a government.
The Slovak-born prime minister, who is trying to form a new coalition after his present government failed to win a confidence vote in January, has also fought in vain to be cleared of a charge of having cooperated with the communist-era secret police.
The organizers of the protest say they aim to collect a million signatures under a petition against Babiš heading the Czech government.
