City Council makes changes to supervisory boards

Prague’s new leadership is placing new people in spots where the city has representation

New Prague Mayor Zdeněk Hříb (Pirates) and his team have started work by making changes to the supervisory boards of the city-run Technical Roadways Administration (TSK) and the Výstaviště Praha exhibition grounds.

The city is guaranteed a number of spots on the supervisory boards of several companies that look after municipal interests. Changing the representation is fairly routine after an election changes the composition of the City Council.

The supervisory boards will see the exit of members who represented ANO, the Social Democrats (ČSSD), the Greens. Those parties were part of the coalition that made up the previous administration.

The new administration is made up of a coalition of the Pirates, Praha Sobě and United Force for Prague ( TOP 09, STAN, KDU-ČSL).

The new members of the supervisory board of the TSK are Deputy Mayor for Transport Adam Scheinherr (Praha Sobě), Jan Jílek, Martin Kala, Pavel Dobeš (STAN), Pavel Richter (TOP 09), Jiří Hoskovec (Pirates) and Jan Lička (Pirates).

Former Prague Mayor Adriana Krnáčová (ANO) is leaving the supervisory board of Výstaviště Praha along with three other members.

Deputy Mayor for Finance Pavel Vyhnánek (Praha Sobě) will return to the supervisory board. He resigned in June, claiming the city administration at that time was unwilling to deal with fundamental problems in the company.

Other new members of the supervisory board will be Jiří Dohnal (Pirates), Petr Kubíček (TOP 09) and Petr Zeman (Praha Sobě).

Changes to the Prague Public Transit Company (DPP) are expected to be made next week. Karel Grabein Procházka (ANO) and Petra Kolínská (Greens) are expected to be dismissed from the supervisory board.

According to media reports, the new City Council is expected to nominate Ivo Vašíček, Michal Zdeněk or Tomáš Mikeska.

Vašíček has experience on board of directors of the Brno transport company DPMB, and Zdeněk is head of the Liberec transit company DPMLJ. Further changes may also be seen in DPP.

DPP runs trams, the metro and buses in Prague. It has over 10,000 employees.
TSK repairs and maintains Prague’s roadways. Last year, it was transformed into a joint-stock company.

Výstaviště Praha was established in 2015 after the city terminated the lease agreement with Incheba. It looks after the administration and development of the fairgrounds in Prague 7, which are currently being redeveloped.

The new administration took over in City Hall on Nov. 15, following elections held Oct. 5 and 6.
