Other politicians of the ruling party, which held an election meeting on Saturday, share their memories of the honorary chairman of TOP 09 Schwarzenberg.
“Dear Kary, thank you for all you have done for our country,” wrote TOP 09 for a quote from its founder.
He left a legacy that is immortal and we must carry it. I will always be grateful that he had such a profound impact on my life, said the new president of topka, Markéta Pekarová Adamová.
“I believe that a person should neither be ashamed of what he is, nor proud of himself. Just say to yourself – God put you here and deal with it as best you can.” And Mr. Karel Schwarzenberg dealt with it really beautifully... For me, he has always been a symbol of the return of freedom, democracy and other traditional European values to our country,” Jiří Pospíšil wrote on social networks.
The newly elected vice-chairman of the party, Matěj Ondřej Havel, said that Schwarzenberg will be his inspiration for the rest of his life. “He was one of the most important post-revolutionary politicians and the greatest characters of our nation,” he wrote
