Ah ta Evropa ravnopravnosti...
Sad je ovo sto Klaus radi - "ometanje demokratskog procesa i volje naroda", a ignorisanje referenduma u Francuskoj i Holandiji i ponavljanje u Irskoj dok se ne dobije zeljeni rezultat - to je sve ok.
Germans seek to oust Czech president Vaclav Klaus over EU treaty
“If the president is obstructing the democratic process and opposing the decision of parliament as well as the will of the people, he is moving beyond the law and will need to face the consequences,” a German diplomat told The Sunday Times.
Jiri Oberfalzer, a member of the Czech senate and Klaus’s closest ally, said Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president, had already threatened the Czechs with expulsion from the EU.
“Ideas of changing the constitution just to get rid of the president only shows how weak our young democracy is,” said Oberfalzer, a Eurosceptic.
The political hot potato now lands in the hands of the caretaker government of Jan Fischer, the prime minister.
Under the Czech constitution a president can be impeached only if he commits high treason against the country’s independence or its territorial integrity and democratic order. It is highly unlikely that parliament would pass such a measure under Fischer’s interim government.
There are other hurdles. The treaty has been approved by the Czech parliament but senators loyal to Klaus have lodged three challenges with the constitutional court, which has rejected two and is widely expected to follow suit with the third.
Opponents of the treaty hope that Klaus will be able to stall ratification until the British general election in May. David Cameron, the Tory leader, has promised a referendum if his party wins and the treaty is still unsigned.
