Academics file complaint against President Zeman

Charles University, the Prague School of Economics and three university professors have jointly filed a complaint against President Miloš Zeman, petitioning a court to force him to do his duty in appointing university professors. Mr. Zeman has caused controversy in academic circles by refusing to appoint certain nominees and eventually giving up the prerogative altogether and leaving the appointments to the education minister. The professors filing the complaint claim that the head of state is acting in violation of the school law.
