Parties urge caretaker administration to exercise restraint in decision-making

Parties left and right of centre represented in the lower house have urged the Rusnok caretaker government not to undertake any more far-reaching decisions during its time in office. In a televised debate on Sunday representatives of the Civic Democrats, TOP 09, the Social Democrats and the Communists criticized the Rusnok administration for making radical decisions before testing its support in the lower house and in the light of its recent defeat in a confidence motion urged it to refrain from similar actions in the coming weeks. One of the cases in point discussed was a decision on the lease of Gripen fighter planes for the Czech military.
