Rusnok: Interim cabinet has improved country

Prime minister in resignation Jiří Rusnok, who will continue to lead the country until a new government is appointed, says his interim cabinet will definitely hand the country over in better condition than they found it in. Speaking on a TV debate show on Sunday, he said he could point to several ways he and his ministers had improved the country, including economic growth, the fiscal situation and accessing available European Union funding. Mr. Rusnok also said that keeping the budget deficit below 3 percent of gross domestic product would be one of the biggest challenges for the incoming government.
