Central Bohemia representatives to select replacement governor

Representatives of the region of Central Bohemia on Monday elected Zuzana Moravčíková the new governor. She replaces former governor David Rath, who stepped down nearly three weeks ago after he was arrested and charged with corruption. Following her election, she said that she would like to involve the opposition in important decisions and grant them more influence in the decision-making process. However, the opposition parties did not support Mrs Moravčíková and were pushing for the resignation of all regional councilors due to their connections with Mr Rath’s administration.
