The lower house of parliament rejected a government plan to trim the budget deficit with higher taxes, a move that threatens to topple PM Petr Nečas’s Cabinet. Nečas, who lost his parliamentary majority in April amid personnel and budget rows, fell seven vote short of the 101 needed today to override a veto by the Senate of a package of measures needed to raise state revenue and cut spending.
