Klausová officially takes up post of ambassador to Slovakia

Former First Lady Livia Klausová officially took up the post of Czech ambassador to Slovakia on Monday, after presenting Slovak President Ivan Gašparovič with her credentials. Mrs Klausová, wife of former president Václav Klaus, succeeds former ambassador to Bratislava, Jakub Karfík. She was put forward by the current Czech head of state, Miloš Zeman, leading to some speculation that the post was a reward for her and her family strongly supporting Mr Zeman’s presidential campaign.
