Opposition parties ask for no-confidence vote in PM Sobotka’s government

The opposition TOP 09, Civic Democrats and Dawn Party want to propose a no-confidence vote in Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka’s government. They made the announcement on Thursday at a press conference in the lower house. The move comes in reaction to Wednesday’s vote over the support of biofuels. Despite its previous declarations, the ANO Party did not vote to end a tax advantage for biofuels. The deputy head of TOP 09, Miroslav Kalousek, has accused the government of corruption, saying that Mr. Babiš’s company Agrofert would use the scheme to tunnel the state budget.
