President Miloš Zeman on Thursday appointed Vratislav Mynář, head of the Party of Citizens´ Rights of Miloš Zeman(SPOZ), his chancellor. The new head of state has gone out of his way to rule out any favouritism for the political party set up by his supporters of which he is still honorary chairman. The two men, who cooperated closely in the past, have already had their first public tiff over the matter. As SPOZ leader, Mynář considered using his new post to promote the party ahead of the mid-2014 general elections. The president made it clear the post of Chancellor of the Office of the President would not be used to promote any political party and said that if Mynář accepted his offer he would expect him to resign as party leader.
