The European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament (ECR) has congratulated Petr Fiala, leader of the Czech Civic Democratic Party (ODS) and leader of the Together coalition, on his appointment as Prime Minister of the Czech Republic.
“We are glad that with your appointment, the impetus to reform the European Union will be strengthened. The ODS are our reliable friends when it comes to developing sensible and implementable policies at the European level. We look forward to continuing to work with you in the future on reforming the European Union towards greater proximity to citizens, greater decision-making leeway for nation states, respect for the principle of subsidiarity, reducing bureaucracy, improving conditions for businesses, secure our borders and strengthening transatlantic ties. We are convinced that you will lead your country successfully and play a very constructive role in the European Union. We wish you every success”, Co-Chairmen Prof Ryszard Legutko (Poland) and Raffaele Fitto (Italy) stated.
The ODS is a founding Member of the ECR Group and currently has four MEPs: Jan Zahradil, Veronika Vrecionová, Alexandr Vondra and Evžen Tošenovský.
