Senators call on Civic Democrats to speed up – or drop – constitutional complaint


In related news, members of the Czech Senate have called on a group of senators within the Civic Democratic Party to either put forward their constitutional complaint against the Lisbon treaty now or shelve the matter. 22 Civic Democrat senators, including Jiří Oberfalzer and Jaroslav Kubera, are planning to put forward the challenge - the second time the matter would be dealt with by the Constitutional Court. Originally, Senator Jiří Oberfalzer told Czech Radio the complaint would be put forward in the first half of August, but others have suggested the matter could be delayed. Senators calling on the group not to delay are members of Social Democrats, the Christian Democrats, and the newest Czech political party, TOP 09.
