Today at Prague Castle, President Petr Pavel entrusted Mikuláš Bek with managing the Ministry of Education and appointed Martin Dvořák (both STAN) as Minister for European Affairs. So far, the post was held by Bek, who replaced Vladimír Balaš (STAN) as head of the Ministry of Education, who resigned due to long-term health problems associated with experiencing covid-19.
Fifty-nine-year-old Bek previously served as rector of Masaryk University in Brno. He became already the third Minister of Education of Fialo’s government. Balaš was sent by the STAN movement to head the ministry last July. At the time, he replaced Petr Gazdík (STAN), who resigned due to contacts with the accused businessman Michal Redl from the Prague Dozimetr corruption case.
Former political deputy of Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský (Piráti) Dvořák was in the past mayor of Hradec Králové, consul general in New York and ambassador in Kuwait.
Today, Pavel appreciated that even the second appointment of ministers as president was “smooth”. “It was also because I have known both gentlemen for a long time and I am convinced that they fulfill all the criteria in terms of people and expertise. The decision was easy,” he said. In March, the day after he took office, Pavel appointed KDU-ČSL vice-chairman Petr Hladík as Minister of the Environment.
According to Pavle, both ministers face an urgent task to explain with the rest of the government the steps to fix the public finances, for which the coalition of five is currently working on a consolidation package. Lifelong learning should be a priority for Beka and transformation of the education system so that people are able to adapt to the era of artificial intelligence, automation and robotics.
Dvořák should then solve it in the first place flexible procedure associated with the European search for all forms of assistance to Ukraine. “Ukraine’s success in the war that Russia is aggressively waging against it is our direct interest. If Ukraine fails and Russia succeeds, it will have a negative impact on all parts of our lives,” said Pavel.
