Lower house remains without chairperson

22-07-2006

The election of the chairman of the lower house, originally scheduled for Friday, has been postponed until late next week. On Friday, the Social Democrats withdrew the candidature of MP Lubomir Zaoralek who was the only nominee for the post. The Social Democrats say that they withdrew their candidate because they were not able to secure enough support for Mr. Zaoralek prior to the vote.
