Czech Republic Sees Shift To The Right In Parliamentary Vote

PRAGUE (AP) — Partial results Saturday from the Czech Republic's parliamentary election showed the centrist ANO (YES) movement led by populist billionaire Andrej Babis heading toward a decisive victory in a vote that will shift the Central European nation to the right. ANO has received 31.0 percent of the vote, after ballots from 66 percent of the country's polling stations were counted, according to the Statistics Office. Babis was the front-runner heading into the two-day ballot that began Friday to fill 200 seats in the Czech Republic's lower house of Parliament.

    Babis says the compensation is too generous and needs correction. The move, which needs parliamentary approval, is seen as an attempt from Babis to win support from the Communists in the confidence vote.
