The Czech lower house rejected a motion on Wednesday to dissolve itself and hold an early election, setting up more months of political uncertainty.

The motion was proposed by the centre-left Social Democrats after President Milos Zeman picked his long-time ally, Jiri Rusnok, to lead a new government against the will of the main political parties. But the plan fell short of winning the 120 votes needed to dissolve the 200-seat lower house.
