How will the parties and party coalitions pass the finish line? Who holds the edge in the almost certain negotiation to form a government? What will the various possible constellations of political parties mean for economic policy? A debate featuring Erik Best of Fleet Sheet, Václav Nekvapil of CEC Government Relations, and Petr Kolář of Squire Patton Boggs, moderated by Weston Stacey of AmCham.
The Czech Republic will return from the summer holiday to a highly competitive election campaign to determine the allocation of seats in the Czech parliament and the government that will lead the country out of the pandemic.
Polls indicate a very close race. What could cause one party or another to gain an advantage between now and the vote? And, if today's polls accurately project the result, who has the advantage in the post-election negotiations to form a government? What are the most likely coalition pairings? And what do those pairings mean for economic policy?
Creator of the Fleet Sheet and AmCham Board member Erik Best, Managing Partner Václav Nekvapil of CEC Government Relations, and Petr Kolář, Senior Advisor at Squire Patton Boggs, will assess each major party's outlook, provide insight on what could happen after the results are in, and debate what it all means for businesses in the country. The discussion will be moderated by Weston Stacey of AmCham.
