The leading government coalition party, the Civic Democrats, have announced they will not allow the embattled Public Affairs party to retain control of the Ministry of the Interior. The party announced, after a meeting of its parliamentary club, that Public Affairs’ continued control of the ministry was unacceptable, and that this would be an absolute condition for the continuation of the coalition. Civic Democrat MPs also voiced their support for the decision of chairman and Prime Minister Petr Nečas to sack three Public Affairs ministers over poor performance and their connections to the ABL detective agency. The Ministry of the Interior is responsible for the police and public order, administrative courts, fire and immigration departments.
