South Bohemian Communist councilwoman to quit post
The South Bohemian regional councilwoman for education and culture Vítězslava Baborová, who is a member of the Communist Party, will most likely step down from her post. The main reason for her resignation has not yet been clarified. The media cite health problems as being one of them, but other sources speculate that Ms Baborová is stepping down as a result of the of continuing protests. Students, teachers and others have held street protests and hunger strikes for the past two months to protests against the Communist Party being part of the regional coalition government, and especially having the education post on the council. The regional Communist Party leadership has announced that if Ms Baborová does resign, the party will name another one of its members to the post.
