Press: PM Nečas threatens to quit over environmental clean-up tender

Prime Minister Nečas has threatened to resign if the coalition government approves a huge tender to clean up environmental damage from the communist era, Lidové noviny reported on Wednesday. Mr Nečas signalled that intention to the leadership of his party the Civic Democrats, but neither he nor other senior members would confirm it, the newspaper said. It reported that the prime minister believes so many doubts have been raised about the tender it could damage the government’s credibility, even if no corruption takes place.
