CSSD chairman Jan Hamacek, according to sources of CTK at a meeting of the broad leadership of the Social Democrats, promised mid-October to resolve the dispute over the appointment of MEP Miroslav Poche (CSSD) to the head of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs . He informed about this at the meeting of the CSSD Presidency in the President's report, which was confirmed by the co-legislators. The CSSD agency has subsequently not accepted any other resolutions. Negotiations, which were not attended by all members of the party, lasted about two hours.
"It is the policy of politicians to try to negotiate and not to burden the public, it would be inappropriate to hinder the hot phase of the campaign," Hamáček said after the leadership of the party. He reiterated that he had tried to settle the dispute with President Milos Zeman. "But more actors are needed," he said. Poche also participated in the talks, according to Hamas he participated in the debate and "is part of the process".
Poche wrote that he is happy that the CSSD is almost unanimously behind him. He then said on social networks that he was disappointed with the absence of CSSD Vice President Jiří Zimol at the meeting. According to Zimola, the social democracy of the castle must design another candidate.
Poche expects to become Minister of Foreign Affairs in the future. "Otherwise I would not continue with this work," Poche told Czech television, pointing to his involvement with the ministry, where he is now a political secretary.
By allowing the resolution of the dispute only for the period after the municipal and senate elections, the Bureau recommended the previous meeting of the party committee. Some party members before the talks expressed concern that, for example, the exchange of the Poche Social Democrat in Prague could jeopardize election results in the capital.
Zeman did not call Poche at the end of June, although Prime Minister Andrei Babiš (ANO), in accordance with the coalition agreement with the CSSD, told him. After a few days of suspicion about the constitutionality of the president's actions, the castle and Burin's office explained that Babis had made an alternative proposal to Zeman, where, in the case of Poche's refusal, he demanded that Hamacek, who also The Minister of the Interior is responsible for the management of Czech diplomacy.
Zeman in mid-July, CTK said that he considered the question of the occupation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs closed. How long Hamas will manage two departments at the same time, leave it alone. The position of Hamacek as head of diplomacy indicates temporary, since the last deadline for the duration mentioned several times the end of the summer holiday.
Poche remains the longest-nominated candidate for a government that has not been named. Finally, Miroslav Grégr has been nominated for the last 27 days. Prime Minister Zeman then asked the CSVD chairman Vaclav Havel to appoint the former Minister of Industry Grégra (CSSD) for the vacant position of Deputy Prime Minister. Havel ran for several weeks, also because he did not agree with his vision, with his concept of economy & # 39 ;.
Another candidate nominated for the government, which was awaiting the president's disapproval, was David Rath in 2005 (then a party to the CSSD). Prime Minister Jiri Paroubek (then CSSD) sent a proposal to the castle on 20 October to appoint Rath as Minister of Health. President Vaclav Klaus refused to call Rath, because his simultaneous work as Minister and President of the Czech Medical Chamber would be contrary to the Constitution. Paroubek appointed Rath as the first deputy and commissioned the ministry. At the beginning of November, Rath left the club and on November 4, 15 days after the proposal, Klaus called him.
The castle claims that from a constitutional point of view the government is complete and Poche does not wait for appointment.
