Nečas to attend Brussels summit

Former prime minister Petr Nečas will represent the Czech Republic on Thursday and Friday at the EU summit in Brussels, even though he was replaced by Jiří Rusnok as the head of the government this week. Mr Rusnok, who has begun work at the Kramař villa in the Czech capital, is currently busy putting together a caretaker cabinet. Mr Nečas, on what will be his final political trip, is expected to propose that more EU funds be used for disaster relief.
