    INTRO: CZECH PRESIDENT VACLAV HAVEL IS CALLING ON THE GOVERNMENT OF PRIME MINISTER VACLAV KLAUS TO RESIGN SO THAT A NEW GOVERNMENT CAN BE FORMED. ALENA KENCLOVA REPORTS FROM PRAGUE.

    TEXT: THE PRESIDENT STEPPED INTO THE DISPUTE AFTER MEMBERS OF THE TWO JUNIOR (GOVERNMENT) COALITION PARTNERS ANNOUNCED THEIR RESIGNATIONS ON SATURDAY. MR. HAVEL WILL START TALKS ON SUNDAY WITH THE LEADERS OF THE CURRENT COALITION PARTIES TO FORM A NEW GOVERNMENT.

    PRESIDENT HAVEL, STILL CONVALESCING FROM PNEUMONIA, INTERVENED IN THE CRISIS THAT WAS TOUCHED OFF BY REVELATIONS THIS WEEK OF IMPROPRIETIES IN THE FINANCING OF THE CIVIC DEMOCRATIC PARTY. MR. KLAUS'S PARTY HAS BEEN ACCUSED OF COVERING UP DONATIONS FROM BUSINESSMEN WHO GREW RICH FROM THE COUNTRY'S EXTENSIVE PRIVATIZATION.

    THE CIVIC DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERSHIP WAS MEETING UNDER THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF MR. KLAUS ON SATURDAY. POLITICAL ANALYSTS BELIEVE MR. KLAUS WILL HAVE TO STEP DOWN AS PRIME MINISTER. IT IS UNCLEAR, HOWEVER, WHETHER HE WILL ALSO HAVE TO GIVE UP HIS POST AS PARTY LEADER. (SIGNED)
