PRAGUE - Hundreds of thousands of people rallied Sunday in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, demanding resign of the Prime Minister Andrej Babis.

The rally in Letna Park, estimated to be attended by more than 250,000 people, was the culmination of a series of demonstrations in recent weeks against Babis, who has faced investigations over alleged fraud and conflicts of interest.

Waving Czech and also European Union (EU) flags, the crowd chanted "Resign, Resign" and "We've had enough". "No Tolerance for Lies and Fraud," read a banner unrolled by the demonstrators.

A preliminary EU report released by Czech media in May said that Babis might have had a conflict of interest over EU subsidies involving his former business empire Agrofert. Babis denied wrongdoing and accused the EU of trying to destabilize the Czech Republic.
