The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, says it is up to individual regional governors if they wish to simultaneously hold that post and a seat in the Chamber of Deputies. Mr. Zeman made the comment on Wednesday after a meeting with governors. He also congratulated his “friend” Michal Hašek on being re-elected chairman of the Czech Association of Regions. Mr. Hašek, who is governor of South Moravia, is at odds with the leadership of his party, the Social Democrats, which has recommended that its MPs who are also governors choose one post or the other. Mr. Hašek failed in an attempt to oust party leader Bohuslav Sobotka after October’s elections and the latter is not close to the president, himself a former chairman of the Social Democrats.
