01-05-2012

The leader of the opposition Social Democrats, Bohuslav Sobotka, has promised his party will “not miss any opportunity” to instigate early general elections. Speaking at a May 1 rally in Vyškov, southern Moravia, Mr Sobotka said the government survived its latest crisis against the wishes of most Czechs, and suggested the regional and Senate elections in the autumn will be a “referendum” on the centre-right government.
