Miloslav Kala to become head of the Supreme Audit Office

The Chamber of Deputies has voted to make Miloslav Kala the new president of the Czech Republic’s Supreme Audit Office. Mr. Kala, who is 49, is a member of the opposition Social Democrats and won the support of that party and the Civic Democrats in Tuesday’s vote; reports suggest a MP for the latter, Zdeňka Horníková, will become deputy president, taking the role currently occupied by Mr. Kala when he is appointed to the top post by President Miloš Zeman. The previous president of the Supreme Audit Office, František Dohnal, received a suspended sentence for failing to allow an investigation into the agency’s financing.
