Government coalition parties are due to meet on Wednesday afternoon to discuss the selection of a future Czech nominee for European Commissioner and the share out of posts on state company supervisory boards. All three coalition parties have put their nominees forward to be Commissioner but have so far failed to agree with each other who should get the job. Candidate of the smallest party, the Christian Democrats, Zuzana Roithová, on Wednesday withdrew her candidature with the party instead suggesting that non-party Petr Blížkovský be given the job. He is already a high placed official in Brussels. Discussions over posts on state companies has been sparked by ANO leader Andrej Babiš ignoring share out conventions and putting many of his nominees on boards.
