Bohuslav Svoboda, the leader of the right-of-centre Civic Democrats in Prague, has said he intends to run for a top post in his party’s national leadership. Mr Svoboda declined to specify whether he would aim for the post of deputy leader. Ahead of an upcoming vote, he backed candidate Filip Humplík to succeed him in the Prague branch, and he also backed Miroslava Němcová for the post of party chairwoman should she decide to run. She and Mr Svoboda, as well as others in the party such as former justice minister Jiří Pospíšil could play significant roles in a new Civic Democratic Party leadership, after a corruption and spying scandal brought down the party’s former chairman Petr Nečas.
