Deputy Prime Minister Karolina Peake has confirmed that she is prepared to take over the defence ministry in a planned cabinet reshuffle. At a press briefing in Prague on Wednesday the deputy prime minister said that her party LIDEM was ready to swap ministerial posts with the Civic Democrats. The arrangement being debated is a merger of the transport ministry with that of industry and trade which would be header by the current trade minister Martin Kuba. In return for the loss of the transport ministry the smallest party in government would get the top post at the defence ministry which is about to be vacated by Civic Democrat Alexander Vondra.
