Czech MEP Jan Březina quits Christian Democrat party

Czech MEP Jan Březina on Wednesday quit the Christian Democrat party citing persisting disputes. Mr Březina, who was twice elected to the European Parliament on a Christian Democrat ballot, said the party had failed to draw conclusion from its defeat in the 2010 general elections which left her outside the Czech lower house. He is reportedly considering running for the conservative TOP 09 party in the Czech regional elections this year. In a statement, Mr Březina said he would remain a member of the European People’s Party.
