ODS spokesman Jana Havelková says it was not a coincidence or a technical problem. She calls for the publication of a rule on the basis of why Czech Televison decided not to broadcast the Fiala’s speech. Czech Television responded by saying that the news station ČT24 and its editorial board are autonomous.
“We have come to the stage where Czech Televison decides what the chairman of the strongest opposition party can and cannot tell the citizens of the Czech Republic at the beginning of a plenary session of the Chamber of Deputies,” Petr Fiala wrote on Twitter.
Fiala also shared the whole speech on his Facebook page. He wanted to criticize Prime Minister Andrej Babis, who, according to him, is only campaigning but not fulfilling his promises. Fiala also called the prime minister to a debate with his political opponents.
