Minerva: Trump comparison – an eurosceptic millionaire heads to win the elections in the Czech Republic

Our Christian Kvorning Lasses contributed to an article for the Norwegian Minerva about the Czech parliamentary elections and Andrej Babis' chances of winning.

While I am being worried about Babis, I am more worried about his eventual successor; if Babis manages to weaken the institutions during his tenure, and his successor is of more nationalist ideological convictions, it can further poison the Czech Republic's relationship with the EU, and jeopardize the democratic development.

The whole article (in Norwegian) is available here.
