Czech prime minister criticizes EU summit mechanism

In related news, the Czech prime minister has also criticized the mechanism of last week’s EU summit. In his opinion piece in Lidové noviny, Mr Nečas said that leaders of national governments were given the final version of the fiscal treaty to immediately approve or reject it, with no time to analyse the document or consult it with experts and members of their government. Such practices are increasingly common at EU summits, according to the Czech prime minister.
