Prague - The Czech ANO 2011 political movement re-elected billionaire Andrej Babis leader at its national conference today, ANO 2011 spokeswoman Radka Burketova told CTK.
Babis was proposed for leader by most of the regional branches.
The conference will choose further members of the leadership who should organise the campaign before the general election in mid-2014.
ANO means "yes" in Czech and it is an acronym of the movement´s name, the Action of Dissatisfied Citizens.
Babis has been officially heading the movement since its constituent meeting last year. ANO 2011 took part in the Senate elections last autumn, but none of its candidates succeeded.
Babis is the owner and head of the Agrofert farm-food and chemical group, one of the biggest Czech companies with 28,000 employees. He is considered one of the richest and most influential entrepreneurs in the Czech Republic.
According to the U.S. Forber magazine world´s billionaires list, Babis´s net property is worth $1.4 billion.
