22-01-2018

Jiří Drahoš, challenger to incumbent president Miloš Zeman in the second round of presidential elections, has stated that while he is against a dictate from Brussels regarding the number of migrants the Czech Republic should accept, he feels that the country is strong enough, both from the administrative and security aspects, to take in a certain amount of refugees.

Mr. Drahoš made the statement in an interview for Novinky.cz. The incumbent president has a strong anti-migrant stance.
