In related news, coalition junior member Public Affairs, irked over the allegations of corruption at the Environment Ministry, called on the prime minister to return to the Czech Republic immediately after the end of the summit in Brussels, to call a meeting of coalition parties on the matter. The party’s deputy chairwoman, Karolina Peake, called the situation “urgent”, saying the scandal had cast a shadow on the government’s pledge to stamp out corruption. Government spokesman Jan Osúch responded on Thursday by saying the prime minister had been informed and would hold a coalition meeting on Friday.
