Sobotka: Hašek’s conditions only his own opinion

Meanwhile, the chairman of the Social Democrats, Bohuslav Sobotka, has said that Mr. Hašek’s conditions merely represent his own opinion and are not the official position of the party. The news website quoted Mr. Sobotka as saying that the Social Democrats would only decide on a position, if – as expected – a vote on Wednesday on the dissolution of parliament proves unsuccessful. Mr. Hašek is believed to have closer ties to President Miloš Zeman, who appointed the Rusnok government, than Mr. Sobotka does.
