Public Affairs to debate its future in the coalition government

Members of the junior coalition party Public Affairs are to meet over the weekend to confirm the party’s new leadership and debate the conditions under which Public Affairs would be prepared to remain in the Nečas cabinet. Following the loss of two ministers over a corruption scandal, Public Affairs is demanding a broad cabinet re-shuffle and four ministerial posts for itself, conditions which the two stronger parties in government find hard to accept. Although the three party coalition has agreed to shelve its internal problems for the time being Public Affairs has not yet committed to supporting the government in a vote of confidence expected to take place in June.
