Marek Výborný is to resign as chairman of the opposition Christian Democrats, he announced on Tuesday. The party will hold an extraordinary congress in late January to find a new leader. Mr Výborný, who has been in the post less than a year, suffered a personal tragedy in late September when his wife died suddenly.
He has three young children and told journalists that being a parent was more important than being a politician.
