John: coalition parties will not support opposition proposals

14-10-2010

Interior Minister, Radek John, says the government coalition (which consists of the Civic Democrats, TOP 09 and his own Public Affairs party) have agreed not to support any of the proposals of the opposition in Parliament. Speaking at a party press conference, Mr John said the approach was a matter of “coalition loyalty”, which he said meant that coalition partners would not be siding on occasion with the opposition, as they did sometimes under the previous government. Opposition proposals that the coalition condones will be incorporated into its own bills.
