The article reports that the Prime Minister of the Ministry of Interiors of Czech Republic, Stanialav Gross has resigned as part of a deal that has brought the fractured parliamentary coalition back together. The move was necessary as part of a deal between the ruling Social Democrats and its junior partners, the Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL), to reclaim a parliamentary majority after the KDU-CSL quit the cabinet amid the controversy surrounding Gross' personal finances. In the aftermath of such a political meltdown, and with a general election due in 2006, most view the reshuffled cabinet as a caretaker government, able just to carry the country through to the election.
