Válková meets with president to discuss possible resignation, situation at Justice Ministry

09-02-2015

Justice Minister Helena Válková met with the president on Monday to discuss the option of resignation as well as the future direction of the Justice Ministry. Minister Válková’s position in the cabinet has become increasingly shaky in recent days; earlier, President Zeman also met with the head of ANO, Deputy Prime Minister Andrej Babiš. The justice minister is keeping quiet details of the meeting, including whether she intends to step down and - if so - when. The media has mentioned her deputy, Robert Pelikán, as a possible successor.
