Opposition attempt to remove Prague mayor Krnáčová fails

An opposition attempt to remove Adriana Krnáčová as mayor of Prague has failed. Councillors from TOP 09 and the Civic Democrats demanded the sacking of the ANO politician, who they accuse of acting illegally by selecting a lawyer in a property dispute on the recommendation of the city’s opponents in the case. However, Ms. Krnáčová survived a vote during Tuesday morning’s extraordinary council session thanks to backing from her own party, the Social Democrats and the Three-Coalition, which together rule the city.
