Für den Beschluss plädierten Sozialdemokraten, Kommunisten und die konservative Partei TOP09 von Karel Schwarzenberg. Nun liegt es an Präsident Milos Zeman, die Parlamentskammer formell aufzulösen und dann innerhalb von 60 Tagen Neuwahlen auszuschreiben. Diese Frist gibt die Verfassung vor. Als wahrscheinlicher Termin für die Abstimmung gelten der 25. und 26. Oktober. Ein endgültiger Termin für den Urnengang könnte an diesem Freitag festgelegt werden.
