The top administrative posts in the newly re-created South Bohemian regional government have been shared out between the four parties and movements making up the new coalition. The post of governor, or hejtman, will stay with the Social Democrats with the role filled by Ivan Stráská. The dossiers of schools and social affairs have been handed to the Christian Democrats. The South Bohemia movement has been handed the transport and development dossiers and the South Bohemian 2012 will deal with the countryside, culture, and the environment. The Social Democrats have been tasked to take the finance and health dossiers. The coalition makeover followed the resignation of former governor Jiří Zimola.
