During their meeting in the Ostrava studio of Czech Television on Thursday, the members of the Electoral Commission did not recommend the Chamber of Deputies to approve the annual report on the activities of Czech television last year. The reason for this decision was the TV Board’s vote last year on the director’s remuneration for 2020. According to some MPs, the Council subsequently voted to reduce the remuneration illegally or questionably.

Representative Jan Lasina (Stan) suggested not agreeing to the report. However, in his statement he first highlighted the achievements of Czech television, for example in terms of overall market share or film production achievements. Other members of the government coalition voted with him to propose such a resolution. On the contrary, it was mainly the representatives of the opposition movement ANO who opposed it.

“We repeatedly doubt whether the council made its decisions in accordance with the law. We cannot agree with the way the council took some decisions. We doubt that it did not act in accordance with the law,” said its member Jan Jacob (TOP 09) at the committee meeting. against the work of Czech television.

Lasina added that disapproval of the report is the only tool the committee can use to respond to objections to the TV Board.

“Perhaps the coalition deputies have gone crazy,” said Electoral Commission Chairman Alice Yuchilka (ANO), adding that colleagues from the government coalition parties are basically opposing each other. “On the one hand, you praise the activities of Czech television, but you do not want to approve the report of its activities,” he said.

Martin Kolovratnik, elected for ANO, similarly expressed himself. “I am very surprised, it is a report on Czech television, not about the Czech Television Council. It seems very hypocritical if we praise Czech television and say positive things and then leave the news and the whole establishment with it.”

According to the deputies, the reason for the dispute is the Board’s action to reduce the remuneration to CEO Petr Dvořák from the previous year.

The decision of the Board of Directors to reduce the director’s remuneration to 66 percent, when it was adopted by a majority of five votes out of eight present and the total number of members at the time was 11, is said to raise doubts. The dispute is whether it is higher, therefore – a qualified majority, was required in this case or not.
