Czech Government Rules Out EU, NATO Membership Referendums
MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Zeman said he would support a possible EU membership referendum in the country but would vote against withdrawal. The Czech government, however, ruled out taking any steps on questioning the country’s EU membership.

"Svobodní want referendum on the Czech Republic’s membership of the European Union since their start (2009). Svobodni support Czexit," the party spokeswoman, Katerina Kasparova, said.

According to the Czech president, the republic's membership of the European Union is very beneficial to the Czech Republic, as it receives $8.3 billion annually which is more than it contributes.
