Cabinet nominations confirmed

The three parties also made public the nominations for ministerial posts in the emerging government. The Social Democrats will be managing 8 portfolios including the ministries of internal and foreign affairs, the ANO party will be controlling the finance, defense and justice ministries among others and the Christian Democrats the ministries of culture and agriculture. Commentators have noted that a number of business leaders nominated for ministerial posts in the emerging coalition government will have to give up their posts at the head of successful companies before taking up their posts in government in order to avoid a conflict of interests.
