Ostrava – Moravian-Silesian Governor and Member of Parliament Ivo Vondrák left the ANO movement today. He said this after the afternoon meeting of the regional presidency, which dealt with the proposal of the national presidency to expel him. Vondrák wants to remain mayor, he feels the support of the representatives. Vondrák himself came to today's meeting with the proposal that he would withdraw from the movement.
“The reason is simple. I think that the situation has dawned, and it has become uncomfortable for many of my friends and colleagues, because the pressure exerted on them was demanding,” Vondrák told ČTK.
Vondrák is a long-term critic of the situation in the movement and in the presidential election he did not vote for ANO chairman Andrej Babiš, but for his opponent and newly elected president Petr Pavl. He subsequently resigned from the post of vice-chairman of the movement and also left the ANO parliamentary club. Vondrák had previously stated that today's meeting of the regional presidency will be key to his decision to remain in ANO.
In the past few days, the mayor of Ostrava Tomáš Macura or his deputy for investments Zuzana Bajgarová, who were also critics of the movement, left the movement. and they supported Pavel in the presidential election.
