Transport Minister to stand down


Transport Minister Pavel DobeŇ° has announced that he will stand down in December.

The minister, a member of the newly formed Liberal Democrats (LIDEM) which was formed as a breakaway group from the Public Affairs (VV) party in May this year, has been criticised for his handling of a new car register programme.

His own party leader, Deputy Prime Minister Karolina Peake, has asked him to stand down immediately. DobeŇ° took the job as Transport Minister in July 2011.
