Head of state president Miloš Zeman officially appointed Jan Chvojka as new minister for human rights and legislation and Miloslav Ludvík as the new minister of health. The appointments for the Social Democrat Party were already announced by prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka in a minor reshuffle of the cabinet. The two new ministers will be installed at their ministries today. Sobotka said his party needed new blood and faces ahead of parliamentary elections in a year’s time and following the disappointing performance in regional elections in October. Fellow coalition partners the Christian Democrats and ANO refused to make changes to their own ministerial teams.
