PM calls meeting with Válková and deputy minister

Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka has called a meeting for next week with Justice Minister Helena Válková and Deputy Justice Minister Hana Marvanová over apparently growing tensions at the Justice Ministry. The prime minister made clear he wanted to hear explanations from both women, as well as from the head of coalition partner ANO, Andrej Babiš. The minister and her deputy are reportedly at odds on a number of issues including the naming of judges. Some close to the prime minister have suggested there could be changes at the ministry in coming days; for some time there have been rumors the ministry was not being well run.
