Prague – Czech Chamber of Deputies chairwoman Nemcova Miroslava is candidate of the Civic Democratic Party (ODS) for prime minister after the resignation of Prime Minister Petr Necas, ODS acting leader Martin Kuba told journalists after a meeting of the party board todayPRAGUE, Czech Chamber of Deputies chairwoman Miroslava Nemcova is nominated by the Civic Democratic Party (ODS) as prime minister after the resignation of Prime Minister Petr Necas, ODS acting leader Martin Kuba said after a meeting of the party board on Wednesday. Necas resigned due to the scandal involving his closest aide Jana Nagyova on Monday. The ODS has already informed TOP 09 leader Karel Schwarzenberg and LIDEM leader Karolina Peake about her nomination.
TOP 09 and LIDEM have said Nemcova is acceptable for the post. But Bohuslav Sobotka, leader of the opposition Social Democrats (CSSD), said the nomination of Nemcova is a risk for the whole nation.
Nemcova said the decision to accept the candidature was not easy. “Simply a moment comes in one’s life when you have to summarise the support that was given to you and you find out that you have to give something in return,” Nemcova said.
Along with Kuba, Nemcova will attend the Friday meeting with President Milos Zeman at which they will try to convince him that not early elections, demanded by the opposition, but the renewal of the current government is the best solution to the current crisis
