New Europe Gets It , Old Europe Doesn't

Czech president urges France to vote 'non' to EU treaty
PRAGUE, May 19 (AFP)

Czech President Vaclav Klaus said Thursday he hoped France would vote against the European constitution later this month.

"I am not sure what the outcome of the French referendum will be but I sincerely hope France votes against the constitution," Klaus, a eurosceptic and vocal critic of the constitution, told AFP.

Asked why he believed all the countries that had voted on the constitution so far had ratified it, Klaus said he attributed it to a lack of public debate.

"To my great regret they have not been listening to the arguments against it. The constitution has been ratified by European bureaucrats and intellectuals who are
exactly the group who will benefit from it," he said on the sidelines of a seminar on the European constitution in Prague.
