Lány (Kladensko) – On the fourth day today, President Miloš Zeman’s talks with candidates for ministers of the new government, consisting of Spola (ODS, KDU-ČSL, TOP 09) and Pirates with Mayors and Independents (STAN), will continue. Petr Gazdík (STAN), a nominee for the Minister of Education, and Anna Hubáčková, a candidate for the Minister of the Environment (for KDU-ČSL), will arrive in Lány in the morning for the head of state.
STAN Deputy Chairman Gazdík has previously said that the coalition agreement of the newly formed government assumes that education must change significantly in the coming years. He identified as the main goals the reduction of inequalities in education, increasing the motivation of students and changes in the content of teaching. According to him, it is important that the efforts for modernization are continuous, because graduates will leave schools only after years, so the results of the changes will only show after that.
According to Gazdík, the parties want to follow up on the work of the outgoing Minister of Education, Robert Plaga (for YES), and fulfill the goals of the Education Strategy until 2030, which he prepared.
The priorities for Senator Hubáčková are the Czech-Polish agreement on the Turów lignite mine, the resolution of last year’s environmental accident on the Bečva River and greater support for alternative energy sources.
The meeting cycle should end on Friday, December 10. So far, Zeman has met with the candidate for Minister for Regional Development Ivan Bartoš (Pirates), the nominee for Minister of Culture Martin Baxa (ODS), the candidate for the post of Minister for European Affairs Mikuláš Bek (STAN), the candidate for Minister of Justice Pavel Blažek (ODS) and nominee for Minister of Defense Jana Černochová (ODS).
Fiala handed over the list of candidates for ministers to Zeman in mid-November. Last week, Deputy Mayors Věslav Michalik resigned due to speculation about his business. The STAN movement elected bankers Jozef Síkel to his place. On Tuesday, the nominated Prime Minister Petr Fiala (ODS) sent Zeman a proposal for Síkel’s appointment.
