Chancellor Mynář to help raise funds for Zeman’s party

The chancellor to President Miloš Zeman, Vratislav Mynář, has said he will help raise funds for the next election campaign of the Citizens’ Rights Party–Zemanites, Czech Radio reported. Representatives of some other parties say it would be unethical for the official, who is a state employee, to act as a fundraiser for the grouping. Mr. Mynář is planning to run as a candidate for the Zemanites, who currently have no seats in the lower house, and says he will only quit his post if he wins election. One newspaper has reported that the president himself will be the face of the party’s campaign.
