The deputy leader of the Social Democrats, Michal Hašek, has presented three conditions for his party voting for the interim Czech government, Mladá fronta Dnes reported on Tuesday. At a meeting with Prime Minister Jiří Rusnok, Mr. Hašek said Finance Minister Jan Fischer would have to clear up questions surrounding sponsorship of his failed presidential campaign; the government’s policy programme would have to share the priorities of the Social Democrats; and the government should remain in place only until early elections in the autumn. However, regarding the final condition, Mr. Hašek said that talks on dissolving parliament could continue even after a confidence vote, and a vote on dissolution could be repeated at any time. At present it appears unlikely any such vote would succeed.
