Finance Minister Andrej Babiš has come under fire for effecting a shake-up on the supervisory boards of state-run companies such as ČEZ, Český aeroholding, Mero and Čepro. The Christian Democrats of the ruling coalition have criticized the fact that they were not consulted about the extensive personnel changes while the opposition parties accuse the minister of handing out lucrative posts to his friends. The finance minister has rejected the accusations, saying he had replaced political figures with experts in the field.
