Pavel will meet with the prime minister and the presidents of the parliamentary chambers
President-elect Petr Pavel will meet tonight with Prime Minister Petr Fiala, President of the Senate Miloš Vystrčil, and Head of the Chamber of Deputies Markéta Pekarová Adamová for their first joint meeting. The meeting will focus on discussing the possibilities of future cooperation between the state leaders and cover topics such as the Castle’s relationship with the government and Parliament, foreign policy coordination, and travel.
Pavel, who was recently elected, has been holding talks with representatives of the government and state institutions. On Monday, he met with Foreign Minister Jan Lipavský and Director of the Security Information Service Michal Koudelka, and on Tuesday with Interior Minister Vít Rakušan and National Security Advisor Tomáš Pojar.
Today’s meeting is expected to last for an hour and a half and will take place in the Senate, which is not favored by the current president Miloš Zeman, who has described it as useless. Pavel’s meeting with the leaders of the state is an important step towards building strong partnerships and ensuring effective cooperation between the state institutions.
The incoming president has already shown his commitment to democratic values by reassuring Taiwanese President Tsai Jing-wen that the Czech Republic and Taiwan share the values of freedom, democracy, and human rights, and will further strengthen their partnership. Pavel hopes to have the opportunity to meet with President Tsai in person and further strengthen the relationship between the two countries.
