The Czech Republic has a new prime minister and is on track for a new government, after more than a year of political limbo caused by the downfall of Mirek Topolánek's centre-right coalition. Petr Nečas was appointed by President Klaus in a brief ceremony at Prague Castle on Monday morning. He'll head a centre-right government that promises austerity measures to tame the budget deficit and a concerted campaign against corruption.
