A new tender will be held to find a suitable candidate to head the Czech Centre in Paris, the organisation’s spokeswoman Petra Jungwirthová confirmed; additional tenders have also been announced for the heads of the centres in Sofia, Stockholm, Warsaw and Tel Aviv. A new CEO in charge of all the centres is also being sought, after the previous head was recalled from his post by Foreign Minister Lubomír Zaorálek for refusing to name Jean-Gaspard Páleníček head of the centre in Paris. Czech centres in Vienna and Brussels will be headed by Mojmír Jeřábek and Jitka Pánek Jurková, respectively.
