Prague - The Czech right has fallen to the second league due to its anti-social arrogance, but its place is being occupied by the parties that are outside the existing system, Jiri Hanak writes in Pravo, commenting on the election campaign before the October 25-26 early election.
What does the Party of Citizens' Rights - the Zemanites (SPOZ) offer? Nothing but being apostles of President Milos Zeman and disseminating his brilliant ideas, Hanak writes.
Can Andrej Babis, head of the ANO, manage the state as a firm? If he can, does he need parliament for anything? Hanak asks.
As for Tomio Okamura' Dawn of Direct Democracy, it is not worth a comment as it is only a sad variety show, he adds.
It is not by chance that businesspeople have the main say in the above parties, Hanak writes.
The Social Democrats will exist even after their leader Bohuslav Sobotka and the party deputy chairman Michal Hasek leave, the Civic Democratic Party (ODS) will exist even after its election leader Miroslav Nemcova and acting leader Martin Kuba go, but nothing will remain after the leaders of the new groupings such as SPOZ and ANO leave, Jiri Pehe writes in Pravo.
Above all, no coherent manifesto will remain after they leave as their main manifesto is what disgusted voters want to hear in various forms, Pehe writes.
If the voters send them to the Chamber of Deputies or even the government, the public will see again what it saw with the Public Affairs (VV), he adds.
It will be chaos, unpredictability and constant lessons given to the general public by the real leader, depending on, metaphorically, how he lately slept, Pehe writes.
One can see an extraordinary disillusion when it comes to established parties before the election, at least the same as before the previous, 2010 election to the Chamber of Deputies, Petr Novacek writes in Mlada fronta Dnes (MfD).
This was why the populist project called the VV gained 11 percent in the 2010 election, Novacek writes.
Now the VV is in the doldrums, but with the notable exception of the Communists (KSCM), the reputation of established parties is even worse than three years ago, he adds.
Hence the chance offered to the ANO and Dawn with their hastily collected candidates and populist pseudomanifestoes, Novacek writes.
In the routine political work, the VV virtually dissolved itself, he adds.
But what is the cement that will keep together the ANO and Dawn? Novacek asks in conclusion.
