Czech Republic government resigns after losing confidence vote
Text size Aa Aa

The Czech cabinet headed by Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok has resigned, paving the way for early elections possibly in October.

The ally of left-wing President Milos Zeman was only appointed in June after the previous centre-right government collapsed.

The political turmoil has continued as the economy struggles to recover from recession.

The resignation comes after the government lost a confidence vote in parliament last week.
