Green Party leaders to meet over appointment of environment minister

Top Green Party members were due to meet on Monday evening to discuss the prime minister’s choice of the new environment minister. The post had been occupied by a Green Party nominee. Party leader Ondřej Liška said Monday that Mr. Šebesta has already marked himself out in office for his anti-environmental decisions. He added that the country now appeared to have a Social Democrat dominated government on the eve of elections. Mr Šebesta was originally nominated by the left of centre party. The right of centre Civic Democrat Party said it hoped Mr Šebesta’s appointment to head two ministries was just a temporary solution.
