The EU’s reform treaty cleared the lower house of the Czech parliament Wednesday as the first step on its often delayed road to ratification by the nation that now holds the EU presidency. The Chamber of Deputies granted its consent with the ratification after a vote of 125 for and 61 against, deputy PM Alexandr Vondra said. The next steps call for the Senate to okay the treaty, and for President Václav Klaus, an outspoken eurosceptic, to put his signature to it.
