The Czech government led by PM Jiri Rusnok has handed in its resignation, after failing to win the confidence of parliament. The move paves the way for an early election, likely to be held by October. The cabinet of technocrats was formed by President Milos Zeman last month, despite opposition from the main parties, who accused him of trying to increase his own power. Mr Zeman accepted the resignation but said Mr Rusnok would stay on for now. The government will act in a caretaker capacity until a new one can be formed.
