Businessman and chairman of the ANO party, Andrej Babiš, said on Sunday that he will remain the head of the food, chemicals and agriculture giant Agrofert holding even if he is elected to parliament. Speaking on the talkshow Partie on Prima television, Mr. Babiš said that neither he or anyone else from his party would take the position of agriculture minister or become memebers of any agricultural committees, but he does not see a problem with being an MP and leading one of the largest companies in the country.
