LIDEM ready for talks on staying in government

LIDEM are prepared to talk to the other parties in the government about the future of the coalition, their leader Karolína Peake said after a senior party meeting on Thursday. Representatives of the three groupings should meet in the first half of next week. LIDEM had previously “called on” its ministers to quit the cabinet on January 10, after Mrs. Peake was sacked after only eight days in the post of defence minister. LIDEM broke off from the party Public Affairs, when it quit the government after becoming involved in a number of scandals.
