Livia Klausová, the wife of former president Václav Klaus, has arrived at the Czech Embassy in Bratislava to take up the post of ambassador. Mrs. Klausová, who was born in Slovakia, will officially assume the position in mid-January, when she presents her credentials to the Slovak president, Ivan Gašparovič. She was put forward by the current Czech head of state, Miloš Zeman, leading to some speculation that the post was a reward for her and her family supporting Mr. Zeman’s presidential campaign.
