President Miloš Zeman says government plans to curb the powers of his office are an attempt at revenge on the part of the government’s legislation chief Jiří Dienstbier, who was a failed candidate in the 2013 presidential election. Mr. Zeman made the comment on Czech Television in response to news of proposed changes to the constitution. These include the Senate having to co-sign on appointments to the board of the Czech National Bank and foreign policy becoming the remit of the government alone. Mr. Dienstbier said the main aim of the proposals was to safeguard the country’s parliamentary rule.
