The ex-prime minister failed in the election against the former high representative of the Czech army and NATO Petar Pavlov.

Babiš should tell the leadership of ANO how he envisions his further work, also with regard to the parliamentary mandate obtained in the elections in 2021. If he decides to leave the lower chamber of the Parliament, he could be replaced by Lithuanian mayor Kamila Bláhová, who finished in the elections first under the line in the Ústí Region.

Board member Ladislav Okleštěk told journalists when he arrived at the meeting that Babiš should remain the chairman of ANO, because there is no such personality in Czech politics. He would also like Babiš to remain an MP. “His authority in the Chamber of Deputies is certainly beneficial to us,” he said.

“We will wait to see what Mr. Babiš comes up with, and we will tell him our opinion accordingly,” said Zlín Governor Radim Holiš. “I think he made a promise to the people that he would do something for them, and he should continue that work,” he said of Babiš's tenure in the House of Representatives.

“If Mr. Babiš continues to want to remain the chairman of the ANO movement and in the Chamber of Deputies, he certainly has my support and I will be happy,” commented ANO vice-chairman Richard Brabec.

Babiš was criticized for some elements of the election campaign, but he himself he denied that it was negative. Marketer Marek Prchal, Tünde Bartha, the ex-prime minister's longtime colleague, and spokesman Vladimír Vořechovský ended their cooperation with him after the election. The first vice-chairman of the movement, Karel Havlíček, said that it is logical that the election team has ended, when no elections will be held in the near future. Some people went to help the parliamentary club, some quit.

Tensions in the movement arose before the first round of the election, when Vondrák and the mayor of Ostrava and former member of the movement's board Tomáš Macura publicly supported Babiš's opponent Pavle. That will also be the point of today's meeting.

“I would like to hear Ivoš tell us what led him to this, if he could have used other steps to get into a discussion with all of us,” Holiš said. “First of all, I want to hear the opinion of Ivo Vondrák, what motivated him to make those decisions and statements. I will form an opinion based on that,” added Okleštěk.
