Czechs Might Vote on EU Constitution in June 2006

A Czech referendum on the European Constitution could be held in June 2006, at the same time as the country's general elections, the Prime Minister Stanislav Gross told Czech diplomats today (30 August) in Prague.

This must first be agreed, however, by any coalition partners that may form part of the next Czech government.

The new head of the Czech cabinet, who last week managed to survive a vote of confidence by a narrow majority, does not expect the ratification procedure to be easy.

However, he believe that if voters are given enough trustworthy information, they will approve the Constitution.
