The prime ministers of the Visegrad Four countries did not agree on a concrete candidate for European Commission president at their talks in Budapest on Thursday, Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis said, adding that the EU should find a candidate meeting all pre-requisites for the post. "We do not plan to push someone through. Our debate focused on whether a spitzenkandidat [should be promoted] or someone else," Babis told Czech Radio and Czech Television. The name of outgoing EC Vice-President Maros Sefcovic, a Slovak representative, was mentioned only briefly during the talks, Babis said.
