Over 90,000 Czechs sign anti-government petition

More than 90,000 Czechs have signed a petition initiated by the opposition Social Democrats in protest against the government’s reform efforts, calling on the centre-right cabinet to step down, the opposition party leader Bohuslav Sobotka, said on Wednesday. Mr Sobotka said the petition, which was launched on November 1, was a great success; however, the Social Democrats will not try to topple the government in a vote of no-confidence, the opposition leader added.
