Local Civic Democrats recommend Nagyová quits party

A local branch of the Civic Democrats has recommended that Jana Nagyová consider quitting the party. However, the Prague 13 constituency group stopped short of expelling Ms. Nagyová, who is the girlfriend of former party leader Petr Nečas and faces criminal charges in connection with a scandal that helped bring down Mr. Nečas’s government. Meanwhile, Civic Democrat MP Jana Černochová said the Prague leadership of the party would expel Ms. Nagyová if the former chief of cabinet’s local branch did not do so before a regional meeting.
