Czech political party ANO launched its campaign for European Parliament elections on Tuesday. Former EU membership negotiator Pavel Telička is heading the ANO list of candidates. He said that some of the main themes of the campaign will be completion of the internal market, promotion of Czech food products and protection of consumers, rational pumping of EU funds, and promotion of exchanges for Czech students. Party leader Andrej Babiš said that three or four of the party’s members in the lower house of the Czech parliament had sought to stand for the European Parliament but the party leadership stopped them from doing so.
