Klaus says court dividing citizens into two categories, judges and rest

10-09-2010

The Czech president, Václav Klaus, has reacted angrily to the Constitutional Court’s decision. He said it divided the Czech Republic’s citizens into two categories: judges and everybody else. In a rare address to the lower house of Parliament earlier this week, the president called on MPs to reign in the Constitutional Court, which he said was exceeding its powers. Mr Klaus said its decision to uphold a complaint against early elections last year was “not politically neutral”.
