Dear all, I usually understand the phrase 'v tom směru' to mean something along the lines of 'in this respect', but I cannot make sense of it in this context. As per Wordreference custom, I shall attempt to translate the sentence since it is more than a simple phrase, but I am afraid it may be far off the mark. The context is the speech Jan Fischer made in the Chamber of Deputies when the early elections of 2009 were cancelled. The Czech is 'Dohoda politických stran, které podpořily další pokračování mojí vlády, byla ale jasná v tom směru, že většina ve Sněmovně nepovažuje nové hlasování o důvěře vládě za nezbytné.' Could it mean something along the lines of 'However, the agreement of the political parties which supported the idea that my government should continue was clear insofar as the majority of the Chamber does not consider a new vote of confidence to be necessary.' Am I close? Thank you!
