Leader of Green Party demands an apology from Prague's mayor

The leader of the Green Party Martin Bursik has demanded an apology from Prague's mayor Pavel Bem for suggesting that Bursik had used his position at the Prague city hall to get a high subsidy for the reconstruction of his Prague flat. Bem told Nova television on Monday that the subsidy granted to Bursik was unusually high and that the short time in which it was granted was not a standard procedure. He said that applying for the subsidy at a time when he was a member of the Prague Town Hall was obviously a conflict of interests. Bursik said this was an attempt to damage him before the elections
