Czech President Vaclav Klaus on Friday asked Petr Necas, leader of the right-wing Civic Democrats, to lead talks on forming a majority government with two other parties.

The move came after Necas informed the president of a plan to form a coalition government with right-wing TOP 09 and centrist Public Affairs.

The president expects to be informed of the results of the talks within two weeks.

The three parties have 53, 41 and 24 seats, respectively, in the 200-seat Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of parliament. The two smaller parties turned out winners in May elections.
