Senator and former European affairs minister Alexander Vondra has said he will run for one of the deputy posts in the Civic Democratic party at the party’s upcoming conference on June 19th. Lower house deputy chair Miroslava Nemcova and former justice minister Jiri Pospisil have also said they are seriously considering making a bid for one of the leadership posts. Acting party chairman Petr Necas, who took over after the resignation of Mirek Topolanek in March of this year, is expected to make a successful bid for the top party post.
