A former TOP 09 MP Stanislav Polčák released a proposal for a constitutional amendment to the Mladá fronta Dnes daily on Friday, which limits the powers of the Czech president. The proposal, among other points, limits the number of attempts the president has to form a new government in case of a successful no-confidence vote, and stipulates that the president’s appointments of central bankers will need to be approved by the Senate. The proposal was already unofficially discussed by parliamentarians over the summer. The Social Democrats might support the amendment, while the Civic Democrats said that they are open to a discussion on the issue, but do not want to make constitutional changes part of their election campaign.
