Czech PM facing fraud charges says he might not head govt

Populist billionaire Andrej Babis has acknowledged he might not be in the new Czech government even though his centrist ANO movement won October’s parliamentary election.

A new minority government led by Babis was appointed in December, but lost a mandatory confidence vote in Parliament on Tuesday. He and other ministers have agreed to resign.

Czech President Milos Zeman said he will ask Babis to form another government.

But no party in parliament seems ready to enter a coalition with ANO (YES) because Babis is facing fraud charges. The charges involve alleged misuse of EU subsidies for a farm he had owned.

Babis told Czech public television on Wednesday the next government might not include him, saying “the ANO movement has to decide that.”

It’s unclear who might replace him as prime minister.
