After yesterday’s vote of confidence it is now clear that the new minority government of Civic Democrats headed by Mirek Topolanek did not get enough support to govern until early elections.
96 votes were for the new government, 99 votes (all Social democrats and Communists) were against, 5 deputies were absent. Mirek Topolanek’s government is going to demise next Wednesday.
According to law it is now President’s turn to appoint a new prime minister who will form a new government and ask for a vote of confidence. Whether it will be Mirek Topolanek again, ex-prime minister Jiri Paroubek from Social Democrats or somebody else it is now up to President’s free will.
