>Wanted: six independents to join new Czech government

> A Czech minority government at last seems within sight in Prague. It will be a minority ODS government to include six independent experts and three women. As MfD wittily observes Topolánek could perhaps try a small ad:

“Wanted six independents to join new government. Immediate start. Inoffensiveness to Social Democrats, Christian Democrats andGreens essential.”

And, it seems, this is intended not as a temporary caretaker government, but a longer term arrangement, as an acceptable programme is now being negotiated. Some Civic Democrats detect a ruse to get the Speakership of parliament in the hands of the Social Democrat and thus gain the right to nominate a Prime Minister designate third time round if the first two attempts to form a government fail.
