Country Report
This article offers an outlook for political conditions in the Czech Republic from 2008 to 2010. According to Business Monitor International (BMI), the odds are certainly lengthening on the government surviving through to 2010. BMI observes that the health and fiscal reforms are running into increasing opposition, and the coalition is becoming more fractious. It also projects that the Irish rejection of the Lisbon Treaty is a distraction that the government could do without.
