In an unexpected move, Sobotka said he’ll submit his government’s resignation to President Milos Zeman this week. The members of the three-party coalition may now find an accord on a cabinet to govern until the elections, scheduled for October, or agree on a snap ballot. The move follows an intensifying conflict between Sobotka and Babis after the premier said last week that the tycoon may have engaged in “tax tricks, or even tax evasion” as he built his empire. Babis has repeatedly rejected the allegations. redstatewatcher.com/article.asp?id=76112
