The Minority ODS Government to ask for a confidence tomorrow. Note that ODS with 81 seats needs 101 votes in 200-seat Lower House. So far, the Greens with 6 seats should be back the Government while the Christian Democract (KDU) with 13 seats are not decided yet. Both Social Democrats (CSSD) with 74 seats and the Communists with 26 seats are expected not to support the minority ODS Government.
Our view: We expect the Government not to receive the confidence. The President should nominate the same or another person to from a new Government but there is no time limit for this. In the mean time, the current minority ODS Government will remain in power. We assume that at least until the communal elections, held on October 21 – 22.
