Nečas to tour regional party offices
Prime Minister Petr Nečas has begun a five-week tour of the Czech Republic, amid increasing anti-government sentiments and unrest inside his own Civic Democratic Party. Last week, Mr Nečas met with representatives of the Civic Democrats in the town of Nymburk and the West Bohemian city of Plzeň. Although a party spokesman said that the visits are standard procedure, the Czech media is characterizing this as a response to the criticism of the government and Civic Democratic leadership. Regional party representatives have complained about Prague’s lack of communication and transparent strategy.
