Former prime minister, and Civic Democrat leader Mirek Topolánek has rejected a bid to live on 10,000 crowns, or some 550 US dollars, for a month. Social Democrat MP Zdeněk Škromach asked the former cabinet leader to take part in an experiment that involves living on a typical retirement pension. For his part, Mirek Topolánek said that the bid was a populist move by the Social Democrats, and that he was focusing on a positive campaign ahead of the early general elections scheduled for October.
