Prime minister to step down on Tuesday

The prime minister of the interim government, Jiří Rusnok, will hand in his resignation on Tuesday, Mr Rusnok said. The move comes after the cabinet failed to win approval from the lower house of Parliament on Wednesday. The prime minister also said his government would make no far-reaching decisions; he suggested some bills might yet be submitted to the Senate but that his cabinet will focus on day-to-day running of the country.
