Civic Democrats outline priorities ahead of coalition deal revision talks

The largest party in the government, the Civic Democrats, have put forward a list of 10 priorities ahead of talks on revising a coalition agreement with partners TOP 09 and LIDEM. Many of the demands concern ideas to foster growth in the Czech economy. One of the Civic Democrats’ two negotiators, Transport Minister Zbyňek Stanjura, said the party was putting an emphasis on slimming down elements of the civil service and merging different agencies. Representatives of the three parties are expected to meet on Tuesday and Thursday this week.
