Prime Minister Stanislav Gross has said he expects the fate of the governing coalition to be clear by the end of the week. On Wednesday he is due to hold talks with the leaders of the other two parties in the coalition, which has been in turmoil since the Christian Democrats called on Mr Gross to resign over a flat-financing scandal. Meanwhile, his Social Democratic Party have called on the prime minister to dismiss the three Christian Democrat members of cabinet.
