Prime Minister Petr Nečas won a confidence vote in parliament and pushed through tax rises and pension reform on Wednesday after quelling a rebellion that threatened to bring down his center-right government. The lower house voted to raise value-added and income taxes in a move aimed at narrowing the budget deficit next year after a group of dissenting backbenchers in Nečas’s Civic Democratic Party dropped their opposition to the legislation.
