Prague - Czech parties agreed to amend the Constitution to be able to run a snap election in early November, sidestepping the Constitutional court's decision to freeze a planned poll on October 9-10.
The Czech Republic is going through a constitutional crisis folowing the Court's suspension of the early elections last week based on a complaint against the vote by an independent lawmaker.
On Monday the parliamentary parties agreed to change the constitution to allow the chamber of deputies to dissolve itself. It would allow a new election regardless of the court's ruling.
Parliament is to scheduled to launch a debate on the procedure next week, probably on Tuesday.
The possible term now is November 6-7.
Experts warn that losing the battle for a fast election would bring a delay in reforms and ability to tackle the economic crisis.
There is still a possibility the early election will take place on October 9-10, should the Constitutional Court rule on Melčák's complaint soon. The court is scheduled to hold a session on Thursday.
