Michal Horáček is a Czech entrepreneur, lyricist, poet, writer, journalist and producer. From 2007 until 2010, he was a chairman of the Czech Academy of Popular Music.[1][2]

In April 2016, Horáček announced his possible candidacy for President of the Czech Republic in the 2018 election.[3] He launched his presidential campaign on 3 November 2016.[4]

2018 presidential election[edit]

Horáček announced his candidacy on 7 October 2016.[5] He officially launched his campaign on 3 November 2016.[6] He said that he wants his campaign to be based on respect for all people and their opinions.[7]

Horáček announced his advisers on 9 February 2017, including: Magda Vasaryova, former Slovak presidential candidate; Dana Drábová, a nuclear energy safety expert; and surgeon Pavel Pafko.[8] In 16 April 2017, Horáček started gathering the 50,000 signatures required for participation in the election.[9] On 6 May he stated that he had gathered the required number of signatures.[10]

Political views[edit]

Horáček once said that "left-wing thinking isn't thinking",[11] but later said that he had changed his mind and started to consider it more seriously.[12] He describes himself as neither left-wing nor right-wing,[13] but his platform for the 2018 presidential election was described by political scientists as left-wing.[14] He supporters European Union membership but would not oppose a referendum about leaving it.[15][16]

Horáček stated in July 2016 that opposing immigration was "like opposing rain", and added that Czechs have historically helped immigrants.[17][18] In March 2017 he expressed opposition to migration quotas, saying that the Czech Republic should not accept immigrants that Czechs do not want to accept.[19] In April 2017 Horáček said that he is against the construction of mosques in the Czech Republic, and said that in his view there is a huge difference between Czech and Islamic culture.[20]
