It was expected that Prime Minister Babiš would present his vision of the future of the EU, with a focus on the upcoming European elections in Jaunary. Sources claim he would have most likely built his speech on migration. However, some MEPs expressed their expectation to hear a more complex and long-term vision.
Over the past weeks, Babiš profiled himself as one of main proponents of a zero-tolerance policy. He has been emphasizing the migration topic and refusing to accept any migrants. Many believe that the upcoming elections will be all about migration and will reshape Europe's political future.
There is no official statement from the government as to why the event was canceled.
