147 views

Václav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic, signed the Lisbon treaty after the Czech Constitutional Court issued its verdict, Václav Klaus himself said. The Czech Republic was the last EU country that did not ratified the treaty. With Klaus's signature, the ratification has been completed. The Constitutional Court rejected a complaint against the treaty and said the treaty was in line with the country's constitution. Klaus said he expected this verdict and respected it though he did not agree with the court's arguments. The EU leaders agreed on an opt-out from the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, demanded by Václav Klaus for Czechs.Václav Klaus's missing signature was the last obstacle to the implementation of the EU reform treaty.
