Czeh Republic to form new cabinet

PRAGUE, Czech Republic, April 13 (UPI) -- The Czech Republic's three-party governing coalition has announced it will form a new cabinet, the BBC reported Wednesday.

The reorganization will allow for the resignation of embattled Prime Minister Stanislav Gross without calling new elections. Gross has faced allegations of wrongdoing in the financing of a luxury apartment.

Gross' Social Democrat party will remain in the coalition with the Christian Democrats and the Freedom Union.

Social Democrat Jan Kohout, the Czech Republic's ambassador to the European Union, is expected to take over as prime minister.

Once the agreement is ratified by the full leadership of the three parties, the new cabinet will be formed and will rule until the next elections, scheduled for next year.
