Members of the ruling coalition - the Social Democrats, ANO, and the Christian Democrats - will meet for the next cabinet meeting in two weeks, on August 27. Until then, members of the cabinet are officially off for summer vacation, beginning Monday. Prior to taking time off, the coalition agreed to adjourn an extraordinary session of the lower house, where new civil service legislation was being debated. Otherwise, MPs would have had to meet again this week. The Czech News Agency notes that two weeks of official vacation is the norm, not met for example last year after the fall of the Něcas government, when an interim government was named and sought support during the summer.
