Government in crisis again


The government of Petr Nečas finds itself in crisis once more. Deputy Prime Minister in charge of the fight against corruption, Radek John, has tendered his resignation and met with president Václav Claus.

The resignation comes after a disagreement between John and the Prime Minister over the makeup of the team the deputy prime minister has been building in his anti-corruption unit.

The coalition government is made up of three parties of which Radek John’s Public Affairs (VV) party is one. This resignation follows another crisis of just a few weeks ago involving members of the Public Affairs party and puts in to question just how long the government can last before an election is called.
