Social Democrats debate candidates for ministerial posts

The Social Democratic Party leadership meets on Friday to agree on its ministerial line-up in the emerging coalition government with ANO. Under the agreement reached, the Social Democrats should be in charge of the ministry of the interior, foreign affairs, labour, agriculture and the culture ministry.

Although the Social Democrats and ANO are finalizing the details of the new coalition government, the agreement could still be scuppered by a referendum in the Social Democratic Party which is to vote on whether to enter into a coalition with ANO. The result of the vote should be made public in mid-June.
