TOP 09 leader says centre-right cabinet will be waiting in the wings

The centre-right parties, who claim to have a 101 vote majority in the 200 member lower house say they will vote against the Rusnok cabinet as one man. Several independent deputies are likely to support them. TOP 09 chairman Karel Schwarzenberg said after a meeting of the party’s leadership on Tuesday that if the Rusnok cabinet fails to win its confidence vote, the centre-right coalition would present its own cabinet with majority support in the lower house. Mr. Schwarzenberg said he hoped President Zeman would appoint such a government to office.
