Peake calls for “responsible stance”


Deputy Prime Minister Karolína Peake, who triggered the latest government crisis by defecting from the junior coalition Party Public Affairs and establishing a break-away faction with which she hopes to continue to support the centre-right government, said early elections would not be a good solution to the present crisis. Mrs Peake said it was important to press ahead with reforms in the interest of young people and the country’s future. She noted that it was not just the Czech Republic but all of Europe which was going through bad times and appealed on the public to take a responsible stance to the country’s problems.
