President Václav Klaus has commented on the weekend’s election results, saying the influence of the new Social Democrat majority in the Senate over planned reforms is vastly overestimated. Mr Klaus told the daily Právo on Tuesday that the only thing that could slow down or stop the reforms would be a lack of unity and thoroughness within the government coalition. The president also challenged the Social Democrats’ interpretation of the results as a referendum on the government, saying the primary factor was that the party was no longer burdened by its former chairman, Jiří Paroubek.
