Czech refusal and new complaint over EU Lisbon Treaty

I will not sign Lisbon Treaty, says Czech president Vaclav Klaus, according to Times Online.


Extended legal challenge

Jiri Oberfalzer and 16 other Czech senators, defeated in the democratic arena and already partially in the Czech Constitutional Court, intend to extend their request. The precise comments will be revealed only after the new challenge has been deposited, reports Czech Happenings.


If further proof was needed, Vaclav Klaus has sent the Czech government and the EU member states on a wild goose chase.

Klaus is getting support from his henchmen.


The Czech constitutional crisis is a fact, even if the government has last spoken about efforts to find a solution.

The European Union is in an institutional crisis, which exposes the weaknesses of its structures.

Two political entities are blackmailed because of their inadequate structures.


How long are the Czech Republic and the European Union going to accept the role of victims in this comedy?

When do they start putting robust structures into place?
