Prime Minister Petr Nečas failed to win support on Tuesday from party rebels threatening to bring down his cabinet over an unpopular bill to raise taxes, raising the likelihood of an early election. Nečas said he would hold more talks with the rebels but said there could be no deal if their real motivation, as suspected by many in the party, was to destroy him ahead of a party congress on Nov 2-4. “If this is about the matter and not about a power shift in the ODS, we can agree and the cabinet will not fall,” Nečas said.
