Five women candidates are reported to be on incoming prime minister Bohuslav Sobotka’s shortlist to become Minister of Labour and Social affairs. A Social Democrat spokesman said Thursday that deputy hejtman for the Olomouc region, Yvona Kubjátová, had been added to the existing list. Sobotka is expected to decide who will fill the post on Friday. His previous nominee, Petr Krčál, stood down from the proposed Cabinet position for family reasons. The Social Democrats had no women in their original line up of ministers for the proposed three-way government.
