ANO Rakes in CZK 263 Million From State in 2017

By ČTK Andrej Babis

Prague, (CTK) – The ANO movement of Prime Minister Andrej Babis received the highest contributions of 263 million crowns from the state in 2017 out of the Czech parties, according to the data that the Finance Ministry released on its website today.

 

ANO has become the party to win the biggest sum from the state budget for the first time.

 

In 2016, the Social Democrats (CSSD) received the highest contributions from the state.

 

The parties get contributions according to their success in elections.

 

The state contributed to the operation of 33 political groupings. In total, it sent over one billion crowns to them, which is twice more than it paid out to the parties in 2016. This is because the general election was held last autumn.

 

In 2017, the CSSD got 142 million crowns, the Civic Democrats (ODS) 113 million, the Communists (KSCM) 100 million, the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL) 80 million, TOP 09 68 million, the Freedom and Direct Democracy (SPD) 67 million, the Pirates 65 million, and the Mayors and Independents (STAN) 44.5 million crowns.
