Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic cancelled zones without supplementary payment
Zones without supplementary payment, which were enabled in urban areas by a part of the Act on Material Need, will disappear. The motion to dismiss was submitted by 17 senators. The concerned part of the provision of the mentioned Act was revoked by the Constitutional Court on August 31. According to its statement, the limitation of benefits in delimited areas affects all people in need and interferes with the law on providing basic living standards. We view the cancellation of the zones without supplementary payment very positively, since we focus on helping people in need in social area in a long term.
