Newly appointed Czech prime minister, Bohuslav Sobotka of the Social Democrats, presented President Miloš Zeman with an official list of candidates for ministerial posts at Prague Castle on Monday evening. Sobotka said after the meeting there were no indications from the head of state that he would press for changes to the ministers proposed by the three coalition parties and added that he counted on the Cabinet being up and running by the end of January.
The list features eight representatives of Mr. Sobotka’s party, six candidates from ANO and three from the Christian Democrats. President Zeman has said he has reservations about the qualifications of a number of ministerial candidates and wants to hold individual talks with all of them starting on Wednesday.
