Prague - Czech President Milos Zeman said today he will not make a possible attempt to form a government until the investigation into the case involving Jana Nagyova, former closest aide and partner of ex-prime minister Petr Necas (Civic Democrats, ODS), ends.

In the speech he made in the Chamber of Deputies that is to take a confidence vote in Jiri Rusnok´s caretaker government, Zeman said he expects the investigation to last several weeks.

Zeman said the investigation is based on the gradual uncovering of links between some politicians and political structures with "Godfather-like" mafias.

"The basis of the case is neither the prosecution of three former lawmakers over alleged corruption nor the investigation into illegal steps taken by the Military Intelligence (VZ)," Zeman said.

He referred to an interview that Olomouc high state attorney Ivo Istvan gave the daily Hospodarske noviny (HN) and his statement that a sensation may be expected.

Zeman appointed Rusnok´s government in July against the will of a majority in the Chamber of Deputies. It replaced Necas´s team that resigned amid the scandal involving suspected bribery and illegal surveillance in June.
