Protesters held a rally in Prague on Sunday to call on the Prime Minister Andrej Babis to resign over corruption accusations and the way his government has been treating public institutions.
Footage shows protesters carrying anti-Babis signs and chanting slogans, demanding him to resign.
“He should resign,” said George who was protested Babis’s “changing” of “the most important authorities in the state like the judges.”
Another protesters Adam accused the prime minister with “not behaving” according to “the democratic principles”, and said that there should be “no [interference] from the prime minister [in] other [powers].” He added that “[the powers] should be [separated] like the democratic principles say.”
The protest was organised by Million Moments for Democracy, which has been urging the Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis to resign following accusations of corruption, intimidating his rivals and in response to electing Stanislav Krecek to be the Public Defender of Rights.
Babis’s government survived a no-confidence vote and corruption charges against the centre-right billionaire leader were dropped.
