PRAGUE (Reuters) - The Czech lower house of parliament resumed its debate on Wednesday on a motion of confidence in Prime Minister Josef Tošovský's government. The government, sworn in on January 2 after the collapse of former premier Václav Klaus's administration in late November, is seeking a vote of confidence in its programme. The lower house adjourned debate on Tuesday evening soon after Miloš Zeman, leader of the main opposition Social Democrats, whose votes are seen as crucial, demanded a clear timetable for price deregulatioon and privatisation decisions in exchange for his party's votes. Former central bank chief Tošovský can probably count on the 61 votes of the right-leaning Civic Democratic Alliance (ODA), the centrist Christian Democrats and the newly-formed Freedom Union. However, the far-right Republicans, the Communists and most of Klaus's Civic Democratic Party (ODS) are likely to vote against the government, making the 58 Social Democrat votes of vital importance if Tošovský is to win the necessary simple majority in the 200-seat house. President Václav Havel told the house on Tuesday that the best way to bring about the early elections most parties, and Tošovský, say they want, was to back the government. The government has already submitted an arcane law, to which it has attached a separate confidence motion. If, as planned, the house ignores the law for 90 days, Havel can dissolve the assembly and call early polls 60 days later. The Czech crown was steady early on Wednesday, trading at 19.26 to the mark.
