The lower house Wednesday overturned one of the measures adopted earlier to help the country weather the global economic crisis. Just months before the May 28-29 general election, the 200-seat parliament’s lower house voted 94-60 to reverse a cut in maternity leave benefits that has been in force since January. If approved by the Senate and the president, the law would cost CZK 1.5 billion at a time when the country’s budget gap has ballooned owing to the crisis.
