TOP 09 accepts Miroslava Němcová’s nomination

TOP 09 on Friday officially accepted Miroslava Nemcova as the centre-right coalition’s joint nominee for prime minister. However the party conditioned its approval by a meeting of coalition leaders on Sunday and stressed the need for the Civic Democrats to lose no time in proposing a suitable replacement for the post of speaker of the lower house. The acting chairman of the Civic Democrats Martin Kuba said his party would be willing to consider a TOP 09 candidate for the post.
