April 23, 2012 19:15
PRAGUE - Czech Prime Minister Petr Necas will call for a
vote of confidence for Friday to test whether his center-right cabinet has
majority support in parliament after a breakup of a junior coalition party, a
source in Necas's Civic Democrats said.
"We will go for a vote of
confidence on Friday and if it is won, we will continue (in government)," the
source told Reuters during a meeting of the Civic Democrat
The government stands a solid chance to survive the vote
after a faction of the split party said earlier on Monday it had secured enough
votes to give the cabinet a majority and avoid an early election.
