In the opinion of the government, there are concerns that the system is not in compliance with the Czech Constitution because:

  • It breaches the equality principle, in that it gives undue preference to entrepreneurs over individuals not conducting business.
  • It breaches the segregation of powers principle and infringes on the law-making authorities of the Senate, the government, and local self-governments. 

In addition, the government has concerns that there is an absence of information on duties relating to applicable EU legislation and international law.
