Former prime minister and ex-Civic Democrat chairman Mirek Topolánek will reportedly attend the Civic Democrats’ upcoming party conference. The former party leader received an invitation from current chairman Prime Minister Petr Nečas, a media representative for Mr Topolánek said. He is due to give an address on Saturday. Mr Topolánek stepped down as chairman last April after making controversial statements in an interview for a gay magazine, causing a scandal. He was replaced by Mr Nečas shortly before the 2010 national election and did not attend last year’s conference. Following his departure from high politics, Mr Topolánek moved to the private sector: he was elected chairman of the executive board of the Association for District Heating of the Czech Republic in September.
