The Czech Republic’s lower chamber of Parliament has approved health care and pension reforms that are opposed by the left-wing opposition and labor unions. Tuesday’s 105-73 vote supports an increase in the fee charged to people who are hospitalised and also would require patients to pay for many drugs they are given. The opposition Social Democrats say they plan to challenge this reform through the Constitutional Court.
