Despite the negative position of CSSD, the government
of Prime Minister Andrej Babiš (ANO) approved the draft state budget for 2022.
Minister of Finance Alena Schillerová (for ANO) stated that a deficit of CZK
376.6bn was planned.
Capital expenditures are expected to reach CZK 218.7bn
in 2022 (+ CZK 31.2bn y/y). CSSD chairman Jan Hamáček said that the budgeted
increase in the salaries of state employees by only CZK 1,400 will not even
cover inflation. As part of the next process, CSSD will therefore seek to
increase their salaries by CZK 3,000.
