MPs will no longer be paid for being on the supervisory boards of state run companies and institutions, Prime Minister Petr Nečas told Friday’s Hospodářské noviny. Mr. Nečas told the newspaper he planned to put a stop to the practice since it went against the conflict of interest law. In recent years deputies on supervisory boards made hundreds of thousands of crowns monthly on the side, arguing that the institution in question was a public rather than state institution, or that it was not a company but a fund. The prime minister said he had no intention of tolerating the practice in future.
