Czech conglomerate Agrofert, founded by Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, has been accused of subsidy fraud. To what extent is he involved?
It's the Czech Republic's largest protest since 1989. Some 250,000 people have taken to the street calling for Andrej Babis to resign amid a corruption scandal that intertwines his government and former business empire.
Do oligarchs in eastern Europe produce the power structures or do the power structures produce the oligarchs? Whichever came first, EU funds aggravate the problem, and it's time this was stopped, writes Boris Kalnoky.
Andrej Babis and his ANO party came away with the lion's share of the votes, outpacing their nearest rivals by nearly 3-1. Still, it was a banner day for insurgent parties, two of whom had especially strong showings.
The re-election of President Milos Zeman is seen by some as a sign that the Czech Republic will strengthen ties with Russia and China. Is the country headed toward a rift with the European Union?
