Prague 7 files a complaint against referendum

The Prague 7 town council has filed a complaint at the Constitutional Court on Friday over the decision of the Supreme Administrative Court instructing the council to hold a public referendum on the location of the council seat. Results of the referendum should answer four questions about how the location of the new seat of the council should be selected. The Supreme Administrative Court ordered the referendum on the basis of a legal complaint brought by residents who were concerns about the over-priced plans for a new council building. The council claims that holding the referendum would threaten its right to self-government.
