Prime Minister Petr Nečas’s support in parliament dwindled to a minority on Wednesday when a deputy quit the ruling party, heightening a rebellion in its ranks and raising the risk of a government collapse next week. The departure cut the centre-right coalition’s official numbers in the lower house of parliament to 99 out of 200 seats, intensifying pressure on Nečas before a vote on unpopular tax hikes after a congress of his party over the weekend.
