“It is right that the President of the Republic fully supports the measures taken by the government he has appointed. It is a pity that I did not hear: “… and therefore I will not request an exemption from these measures for myself on October 28.” If he gets the exception, he can say what he wants about the support. The shown ones are valid, “Kalousek wrote on Twitter.
He thus reacted to the planned ceremony on October 28 at Prague Castle, where Zeman is to present a state award. The current measures against the spread of coronavirus prohibit the gathering of more than six people.

Senate President Miloš Vystrčil essentially acknowledged the president’s speech, but lacked “reassuring leadership.”
Mr. President, among others: Thanked 👏. He emphasized the obligation to wear veils 👍. He criticized those who communicate poorly 👍.
It is a pity that there was a lack of energy, persuasion and a strengthening and reassuring leadership, complemented by a warning about the difficult period that awaits us.

The speech was also praised by the chairman of KDU-ČSL Marian Jurečka, according to whom he was “more conciliatory than usual”. Jurečka also called for consideration.
I appreciate that the President’s speech was more conciliatory than usual, calling not only to respect government regulations, but also to wear veils and personal responsibility. It’s really no fun and we have to be considerate. Take care of yourself and hold on, we’ll make it in the end!

ODS deputy chairman Martin Kupka said that Zeman had simplified the fight with coronavirus for wearing veils. He said he expected encouragement.
The President has simplified the fight against metalwork. It’s about more. I don’t want to be unnecessarily critical, but I expected the head of state to look to the future with hope and encourage the public. Let’s be sensible, responsible, good minded – and overcome it!
