The newly-appointed justice minister Jan Kněžínek has been appointed the head of the government’s Legislative Council, the government’s press department said on Wednesday.
Charles University professor Kněžínek, who served as a deputy head of the Legislative Council, replaced Taťána Malá in the post of justice minister last week, following allegations that she plagiarised parts of her university thesis.
The Legislative Council serves as an advisory body for the government’s legislative work.
