Czech Social Democrats see enough support to call early election

PRAGUE (Reuters) - Czech Social Democrat party leader Bohuslav Sobotka said on Thursday he believed there was sufficient support for a motion to dissolve parliament and hold an early election in the autumn.

Support for such a move grew after a new government led by Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok lost a parliamentary confidence vote on Wednesday.
