MPs elect members of Czech TV council

The Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday elected six new members of Czech TV council, a supervisory body of the public service broadcaster Czech TV. Among those elected are former Communist MP Ivana Levá, former rector of Prague’s University of Economics Richard Hindls, philosopher Michal Hauser, and others; they replace six former council members who mandates have expired. MPs also elected two new members of the council of Czech Radio; another member will be elected later on Wednesday, the head of the lower house’s election committee Martin Kolovratník said.
