    TAXES: Finance Minister Andrej Babis wants to lower taxes,
especially the vaule-added tax (VAT), cut dividend tax and also
decrease the payments into the welfare system.
    However, any change is possible only for the next
government, Babis said, because the current coalition agreed
that taxation can be adjusted only if all three members agree to
it - Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka's Social Democrats are
against tax cuts.

    PROPERTY: Social Democrats' headquarters, Lidovy Dum in
downtown Prague, has been blocked by a court in connection with
a 337-million debt the ruling party of Prime Minister Bohuslav
Sobotka owes to the late lawyer Zdenek Altner.
