The ODS leadership decided on Tuesday, October 13, that Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) had lost the ability to run the government and the state. According to the opposition party, the YES and CSSD cabinet should ask for confidence after the end of the state of emergency. Otherwise, the ODS faction in the House will seek support for expressing no confidence in the government. Deputy Prime Minister Jan Hamáček (CSSD) said on Tuesday that the government would not ask for trust. According to the ODS, the government and Babiš are responsible for the “fatal unpreparedness” for the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic.
While a majority of all Members present is required to express confidence in the government, a vote of no less than 101 votes is required.

The Civic Democrats are the second largest parliamentary faction with 23 deputies, while the Mayors are the least numerous with six members. A motion of censure on the Government may be submitted in writing by at least 50 deputies.
The last time the vote of no confidence was in the government was at the end of last June. Five opposition parties then called for a vote in response to preliminary European Commission audit reports pointing to Babis’ alleged conflict of interest.
