The governor of the Central Bohemian Region, Social Democrat Josef Řihák, has stepped down, after a year and a half in his post. No official reason for Mr Řihák’s resignation has been given although his decision comes after mounting calls for him to step down from Social Democrat leader in the region who have complained about the governor’s nominations for some of the key positions in the region’s administration. Mr Řihák is likely to be replaced by his main party rival, deputy governor Miloš Petera.
