The Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic has recently postponed the parliamentary elections that were scheduled on October 9-10. Such a decision was made after an independent MP Milos Melcak complained that early parliamentary polls would violate his rights to serve the whole term of duty.

Yesterday the Court issued the ruling telling that the law according to which the date of the parliamentary elections was set should not be executed due to the above-mentioned complaint. No other explanations on account of the necessity of this postponement were not given. Later the Court will decide whether to satisfy Milos Melcak’s complaint or not.

Vaclav Klaus , the President of the Czech Republic, said that this course of action is “unprecedented” and "entirely political". Mirek Topolanek, leader of the Civic Democratic Party, added that this decision was "irresponsible" and "will negatively affect" the current sitiation in the country – both in the economical and political spheres.

The parties in complete accord claimed that the Constitutional Court resolved this situation as soon as possible. The elections were appointed in Match this year, so the parties have already launched their campaigns.
