Populist, anti-EU sentiment on the rise in Europe
Populist billionaire candidate Andrej Babis and his party have won the Czech Republic’s general election.
Mr Babis, 63, is the country’s second-richest man and campaigned on an anti-establishment and Eurosceptic platform.
Results from more than 98% of polling stations gave his centrist movement ANO (Yes) almost 30% of the vote – nearly three times its closest rival.
The centre-right Civic Democrats and the far-right SPD came second and third with a little over 10% each.
Turnout was a little over 60%.
