Emerging Europe: Are Czech-EU Relations at Breaking Point?

Martin Vokálek contributed to Emerging Europe with his analysis of post-election situation in the Czech Republic with an emphasis on Czech-EU relationships.

Server Emerging Europe has published an analysis made by Martin Vokálek in which he discussed Czech politics after the parliamentary election in October 2017.  The post-election negotiations and composition of the future government will influence the Czech-EU relationships. 

Czech-EU relations will primarily be shaped by the new coalition, whose composition is as yet uncertain due to a lack of clear coalition partners for ANO (caused by animosity between Babiš and the majority of the remaining parties).

On Andrej Babiš, leader of the winning political party.
