Faltýnek: ANO ready for opposition, will not seek to block transition

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš’s ANO is readying to go into opposition, senior party member Jaroslav Faltýnek said on Tuesday. Mr. Faltýnek said the party would not attempt to block the handover of power to a new coalition government, adding that that would be unwise.

The ANO politician said his party were able to count to 108, which is the number of seats in the 200-seat lower house held by the five parties currently talking about forming a government.

Mr. Faltýnek said that as ANO were the single party with the most seats they should get the post of speaker.
