Freedom and Direct Democracy

Freedom and Direct Democracy – Tomio Okamura ( Czech : Svoboda a přímá demokracie – Tomio Okamura , SPD ) is a hard Eurosceptic , [5] anti-immigration and pro- direct democratic political party in the Czech Republic . The party holds 22 seats in the Czech Chamber of Deputies .

History

The party was founded in May 2015 by Tomio Okamura and Radim Fiala from the Dawn of Direct Democracy, now Dawn – National Coalition . Since the party did not exist before the Czech legislature 2013 , the then 8 parliament members of this party were officially called “Independents” until the 2017 Czech legislative election . Following that election, the party now holds 22 seats in the Czech Chamber of Deputies .

Freedom and Direct Democracy is named after the European Parliament Eurosceptic political group Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy . [15] [16] [17] The party has links with Marine The Pen ‘s National Front which is a member of the Europe of Nations and Freedom , a separate Eurosceptic political group in the European Parliament [18] and Marine Le Pen endorsed SPD before the 2017 Czech legislative election . [19]

In December 2017, SPD hosted a conference of the Movement for a Europe of Nations and Freedom in Prague , with parties such as the French National Front , Dutch Party for Freedom, Freedom Party of Austria and Lega Nord of Italy. [20]

Organization

Membership

Tomio Okamura often claims that SPD has a membership of thousands of members. In October 2017 he claimed that SPD has 7,000 members. [21] In November 2017 that SPD has 12,000 members. Doubt has been cast on these figures, with the suggestion that Okamura often conflates numbers of supporters with actual members. It was reported in 2015 that SPD had only 20 members, compared to Okamura’s claims of 10,000. The actual number of members is unknown. [3]
