Czech PM says government needs majority, plans talks
PRAGUE (Reuters) - Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas will hold talks with Vice Prime Minister Karolina Peake, who left her Public Affairs party on Tuesday to set up a new political faction but wants to stay in the ruling coalition, news agency CTK reported.
He said the government needed to secure a clear majority in parliament.
CTK and the online version of weekly Tyden cited sources on Tuesday saying Peake's faction would be strong enough to give the three-party cabinet majority in parliament and keep it afloat even if the rest of Public Affairs leave the cabinet after the split.
