KDH will leave cabinet if Fronc is recalled

THE RULING Christian Democratic Movement (KDH) threatened to leave the cabinet if KDH member, Education Minister Martin Fronc, is recalled following an opposition initiative.

KDH officials said they would leave the government even if the recall was achieved thanks to independent MPs and no ruling MPs supported the no-confidence vote.

The ruling New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) which has criticized Fronc extensively in the past few weeks, considers this position to be political blackmail. ANO deputy chairman Lubomír Lintner told the Pravda daily that the "KDH elevates one minister over the whole cabinet".

Several ANO MPs are considering supporting the no-confidence vote against Fronc, including Lintner. ANO's Eva Cerná even said that if Fronc defends his seat, she would not support any more of his laws.

At the upcoming parliamentary session, MPs will vote on Fronc's university reform, which introduce tuition fees for university education.
