Abstract

It is now about two months since after a successful election in October 2021, a new Czech government headed by the right of centre political scientist Petr Fiala has taken over. However, serious doubts are arising about the policies of this government. It has assumed a negative attitude towards the EU Green Deal ecological strategy and wants to manufacture petrol-based vehicles until 2040 at least. It is introducing a policy of financial cuts and proposes to sack health workers, before the coronavirus pandemic is over. It has concluded a controversial treaty with Poland about the giant open-cast coal mine Turów near the Czech border, which threatens the water supply of the villages on the Czech side of the border. It refuses to sign the Istanbul agreement banning violence against women in households. Will Professor Jiří Pehe, political scientist and head of the Prague branch of the New York University, dispel Jan Čulík's doubts about this government in this Britské listy Interview? It was broadcast by the Czech cable TV station Ragionalnitelevize.cz from 18th February 2022.
