The governor of the Vysočina region and lower house deputy Jiří Běhounek has said he will ignore a party recommendation for him to give up one of his posts. Governor Běhounek, an MP for the Social Democrats, said he had no trouble fulfilling his duties both as MP and governor and argued that his presence in the lower house made it easier for him to communicate the region’s needs to colleague MPs and cabinet ministers. The move was criticized by party leader and Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka who has fought against the practice of politicians holding several important posts each of which is time consuming.
