President Miloš Zeman has praised the government for its plans to index link pensions and increase monthly tax breaks for parents who have more than one child. Speaking on a Czech TV politics show on Sunday, the head of state also said he was glad that preparations for a civil service law were making progress. Mr. Zeman said he could only find fault with the Social Democratic Party-headed coalition for stalling on the introduction of a social housing bill. The president said he planned to attend a meeting of the government on June 16.
