Czech Republic Will Exit ‘Corrupt EU’ Says Incoming Leader

Fact checked
New leader of Czech Republic vows to leave corrupt European Union

The newly elected leader of the Czech Republic, Andrej Babis, has vowed to leave the “corrupt EU” and restore sovereignty to eastern Europe. 

The popular leader, dubbed ‘the Czech Donald Trump,’ is set to win the country’s election by a landslide according to exit polls. reports: ANO, which means ‘Yes’ in Czech and also stands as an acronym for the ‘Action of Dissatisfied Citizens’, has taken a clear lead in the election with more than 30 percent of the vote, beating its closest rivals by around 20 percentage points, according to exit polls cited by the Czech media.

The center-right, euroskeptic Civic Democratic Party (ODS) has come in second, securing about 11 percent backing. The anti-immigrant and anti-Islam far-right populist Freedom and Direct Democracy Party (SPD), led by the Czech-Japanese entrepreneur Tomio Okamura, moved into third place with about 10.8 percent support.

The polls also show that five more parties have managed to clear the five percent hurdle and get into parliament, including the Czech Pirate Party, the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia, the Social Democrats and the Christian Democratic Union as well as the movement of Czech mayors and independents.

The exit polls’ results demonstrate a significant shift to euroskepticism in the Czech Republic as all the three leading parties represent anti-establishment forces in one way or another. Babis, who leads the ANO movement, is particularly known for his skepticism about the euro and severe criticism of the EU’s immigration policies, including the refugee quota system.

The SPD also actively opposes immigration and calls Islam an ideology rather than a religion while the Civic Democrats are critical towards the EU and advocate permanent exception from euro adoption for the Czech Republic.

The pro-EU Social Democrats (CSSD) received only 7.7 percent of the votes, according to the exit polls, while the liberal TOP 09 movement, which is considered to be the strongest supporter of the further European integration and euro adoption, even failed to clear the election hurdle as it gained only slightly more than four percent of the vote.

Babis, who is poised to become the new Czech prime minister as his party’s electoral victory is almost certain, is, however, a controversial figure. The Czech Republic’s second richest man and a billionaire, who owns one of the Czech biggest private employers – the agricultural giant Agrofert – as well as a media empire, he has already served as finance minister and deputy prime minister, but was dismissed due to allegations of financial misconduct.

Babis was sacked from the government in May after a months-long coalition crisis that started with allegations that he dodged taxes as Agrofert CEO back in 2012. He was separately charged over allegedly misusing EU subsidies. Babis dismissed all the allegations, calling them “politically motivated.”

Despite his issues with the law, Babis remains one of the most popular Czech politicians. In September, the Czech President Milos Zeman told the local media that he would name Babis the new prime minister in the event of his party’s victory, even if he were in police custody.

The two-day vote was held on October 20 and 21 to fill 200 seats in the Czech parliament’s lower house – the Chamber of Deputies. The voting ended at 14:00 local time (12:00 GMT) on Saturday with most ballots being expected to have been counted by the end of the day. However, the official results are scheduled to be announced no sooner than next week.

The results of the Czech elections have become just the latest episode of what seems to be the onward march of the right across Europe. Just a week ago, two anti-migrant parties gained the lead in the Austrian parliamentary elections and are now expected to form the ruling coalition.

Earlier, the right-wing anti-immigrant Alternative for Germany (AfD) party enjoyed what was called a historic success while Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats and perforce the Social Democrats suffered their worst results in more than half a century at the September parliamentary elections in Germany.

In the French presidential elections in spring 2017, Marine le Pen, the head of the right-wing National Front party made it into the run-off, beating candidates from such major establishment parties as the Republicans and the Socialists.

And in the Netherlands, Geert Wilder’s ultra-nationalist Party of Freedom came second in this year’s parliamentary elections.


  1. In a stunning “IN YOUR FACE” reversal of Angela Merkel’s win, the Czech Republic, Poland, Hungary and Slovakia showed their support for Germany’s “Alternative für Deutschland” Party and invaded Western Europe on two broad fronts this evening with a goal to repel the muslim invasion and restore law an order!

    The extreme threat in about 10 years by 4 new muslim nuclear powers, Iran, France, Germany and Britain, was too great to ignore any longer.

    Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May threatens to flood the English Chunnel to stop them.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel retreated to Berchtesgaden with her muslim refugee sycophants chanting, Allahu Akbar! Sieg Heil!

    France is expected to surrender out of hand.

    • you are dreaming…. you seem to forget who is the conductor of the orchestra.. satan…… actually you probably have no real idea about anything to make such a stupid comment.. you stupid human(s)

  2. Good. And they all smoke like chimneys and drink like fish so the best IQs win. God is good. Get the bigger white pools like Germany and Poland the f(ck out of the EU.

    Europeans have inherited an anglo self-mutilating bug, but the ones with a few brain cells left should definitely tried to save SOME of Europe (and their genome). Never know where we’ll all have to go in the future. I’m not entirely banking on pre-built Chinese cities nor gated shit in stoned South America.

  3. President Trump needs to arrest S0R0S and all his fake evil organizations need to be closed down then humanity has a chance of goodness. This old evil man is on the payroll of Satan trying to destroy not just US but whole world. Just like evil bolsheviks back in 1915s-1918 did to Russia, same ppl
