Greens to propose Ondrej Liska for education minister

27-11-2007

The leadership of the Czech Green Party is to nominate Ondrej Liska for the post of education minister. Former education minister Dana Kuchtova made the announcement to journalists on Monday night, adding that Mr Liska was not the candidate she had voted for. Mr Liska won the support of the Green Party leadership by four votes to three. The Greens have been split over who should replace Mrs Kuchtova at the head of Education Ministry ever since she resigned two months ago. Head of the party Martin Bursik said that the decision should be made by the Green Party leadership, while others, such as Mrs Kuchtova, thought that the choice should fall to the party’s national council, who were behind another candidate, Olga Zubova.
