Czech Republic Guided by President Vaclav Klaus

The Czech Republic government fell today throwing into doubt Czech acceptance of the Lisbon Treaty. The consideration of the siting of radar facilities for the United States had already been withdrawn from the Parliament before a vote.

President Vaclav Klaus, whose views on the democratic deficits of the Lisbon treaty were made clear in a recent address to the European parliament, now invites those he thinks able to form an administration to do so. Should this measure fail, after three attempts, there will be an early general election.
