The desperation of the Prague STAN reaches critical values
COMMENT Prague STAN candidate Petr Hlaváček promises to heat Prague with our biogas. Elsewhere, they founded “Bs” – that is, backup pseudo-civilian movements that are supposed to collect some extra votes from hesitant voters. STAN falls and leaks into him like never before.
Hlaváček was one of the few who understood what was at stake in the upcoming municipal elections, and that is why he came out with the idea that he would use photovoltaics and biogas to save the people of Prague from the drastic increase in energy prices. Nothing against these alternative sources. Maybe one of Hlaváček’s marketeers – even sober ones – should go to his breadwinner and explain to him that if the solution proposed by him was to work, every resident of the capital city would have to constantly carry a photovoltaic panel on their back and eat only peas while on the streets.
Hlubuček’s Shadows: Hejma and Zelenka
In individual city districts, they approach it differently than the above-mentioned thinker. In Prague 1, Petr Hlubuček’s friend Petr Hlubuček, an outgrowth of an important developer family, is running for mayor for STAN, Petr Hejma. A few weeks before the elections, the town hall led by him published a municipal newsletter that surprised even his staunch coalition partners. In a nutshell: if it weren’t for Hejma, Prague 1 today looks like it did after the invasion of the Swedes in the Thirty Years’ War. The opposition is going crazy because of the obvious misuse of the town hall slice during the pre-election campaign; the roof of the TENT Hejma is at peace, he just sold his non-work.
In Prague 22, STAN doesn’t bother with it at all. Vojtěch Zelenka, the local ex-mayor from this party, whose local representatives removed him from his position a year and a half ago, still feels wronged, even if unjustified. He was in contact with the accused boss Hlubuček – in his notorious case – both in the STAN party line and at the level of mayor and deputy mayor. In addition, Zelenka has a criminal report on her neck due to the multi-functional house project in Pitkovice. Anyone who expects that Zelenka will still run in this year’s municipal elections is wrong. Zelenka goes at it again; even if you murdered grandma, it probably wouldn’t matter in STAN.
In addition to the aforementioned, Zelenka also tried to secure a “win” in the elections by putting together a kind of “B” – these are so-called independent candidates who are running in an entity called Citizen Candidate 22 (OK 22). These are mostly people historically related to Zelenka. The purpose is clear: pretend that STAN and OK 22 are like fire and water, but after the elections jump into the management of the town hall together.
No political corpses in Prague 6
In order for this text to be objective, we should also not forget the positive candidates of STAN, for example in Prague 6. Here, among others, Jan Konvalinka, a recognized biochemist and director of the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic, is running for the council. An expert with an international reputation and a person who does not need to heal his mind in the jungle of municipal politics.
Look, the more naive reader will say, things won’t be so hot with STAN’s amateurism after all. Mistake, dear. The problem is that the lily of the valley is like saffron, while the greenish weeds are way over your head.
