Coalition government to discuss reforms with opposition and trade unions

The coalition government of the Civic Democrats, Christian Democrats, and the Greens, will discuss all planned reform with the opposition and trade unions. In a Czech TV interview on Sunday, Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek said the debate will have to take place simply because the coalition does not have a majority in the lower house of Parliament and relies on the vote of at least one opposition MP. Mr Topolanek also reiterated that the opposition Social Democrats will be offered posts in commissions formed to put some of the reforms in place.
