Senate chairman convenes extraordinary session

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Senate, Premysl Sobotka, has convened an extraordinary session of the upper house of the Czech Parliament for next Wednesday. The Senators should discuss the possibility of early elections to the lower house. They are also going to discuss an amendment to the Constitution which would enable the President to dissolve the lower chamber, provided that a majority of MPs have approved it and the government has stepped down. Under current legislation, the procedure is considerably lengthier.
