Seemingly unimpressed by Defense Minister Alexandr Vondra’s (Civic Democrats, ODS) explanation Thursday of his role in the ProMoPro affair, TOP 09 parliamentary group chairman Petr Gazdík and the party’s deputy chairman, Finance Minister Miroslav Kalousek, have called for Vondra to resign voluntarily or be forced to step down. Gazdík said this was imperative to restore trust in the center-right coalition government, of which TOP 09 and Public Affairs (VV) are junior coalition partners.
