Donald Trump of Europe Wins Czech Republic Election

• themaven.net by Mike Mish Shedlock

Babis wants nothing to do with the euro, but he does want to stay in the EU. Anti-establishment or Eurosceptics parties took the top four spots in a huge smack at Brussels.

Please consider Andrej Babis, the Czech Republic's own 'Donald Trump' .

On Saturday, Babis' ANO (Action for Dissatisfied Citizens party) took home a landslide victory in the Czech general elections with 29.6 percent of the votes, handing it 78 seats in the 200-seat lower house of parliament. Although the ANO didn't win a majority, and will now have to form a coalition, the eastern European nation of 10.6 million is by many accounts now expected to shift to the Eurosceptic right.>

Babis, the second-richest man in the country with an estimated net worth of €3.48 billion, entered Czech politics five years ago when he founded his anti-establishment ANO party "to fight corruption and other ills in the country's political system" following a string of government scandals.
