Czech Government Loses Confidence Vote; Elections To Be Held This Summer
March 24, 2009 in International Greens
In the Czech Republic the Christian Democrat-Civic Democrat-Green Party coalition government fell as a “no-confidence” vote passed in the national legislature today. I recently wrote a blog post about the Czech Green Party’s troubles recently which you can find here.
Well, that means the Czech Greens are out of government for the time being. This does not bode well for the Czech Greens who are experiencing pretty intense infighting (four members were expelled; two of them were members of the lower house). It is interesting to note that those two former Green representatives voted against the government in the confidence vote.
How well will the Czech Greens do in the next election to be held this summer remains to be unseen, but it doesn’t look good in my opinion.
