The following chapter is dedicated to the discussions on the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty by the Parliament of the Czech Republic and its further implications. The first part deals with the stance of the Czech political elite towards the European integration and its further deepening, which should allow us to understand the grounds for its behaviour. The next part analyses the actual ratification discussions, which were extended into the Czech Presidency term. The last part of the chapter follows the cooperation of the Government and the Parliament on the Czech Presidency.
