PM: fall of Slovak government bad news


Prime Minister Petr Nečas said at a press briefing in Prague on Wednesday the fall of the Slovak government over an EU bailout fund was bad news. The Czech cabinet has a close working relationship with Prime Minister Iveta Radičova’s pro-reform government. In developments on Wednesday three out of Slovakia’s four centre-right coalition parties struck a deal with the left wing opposition party Smer on support for the EU rescue fund in a repeat vote later this week, to be followed by early elections in March.
