Petr Fiala elected leader of Civic Democrats

The Civic Democrats elected Petr Fiala party chairman at a congress in the eastern city of Olomouc on Saturday. The post had been occupied in a caretaker capacity by Martin Kuba following the resignation of former prime minister Petr Nečas in the wake of a scandal that brought down the last elected government. A political scientist, Mr. Fiala only joined the Civic Democrats in November but was previously the party’s appointment as education minister.
