Peake resigns as head of LIDEM

In related news, Karolína Peake resigned on Thursday as the leader of LIDEM, which was the smallest party under the previous government. Mrs Peake, who left the Chamber ahead of Wednesday’s confidence vote, said she had decided to step down as she held different views on basic issues from most of the grouping’s seven other MPs. LIDEM formed in April last year as a splinter group from the Public Affairs party, which rose to prominence quickly but quit the coalition after becoming embroiled in scandal.
