Prime Minister-designate Jan Fischer confirmed on Tuesday the final line-up of the Czech interim government that will rule the nation until the October early elections. The posts of deputy prime ministers will go to Jan Kohout and Martin Bartak.

"I am glad that the rather lengthy period of forming the government has ended. From its Friday appointment on, the new cabinet will be able to take up fully its agenda," Fischer said, adding that the talks had been rather difficult, but he eventually managed to respect the contours of the political agreement thanks to which the new government had been formed.

Fischer said he was satisfied with his team.

He said everything was not smooth, but after some corrections were made, the final line-up was good.

Kovarova's appointment is the result of a compromise. Based on a political agreement and compromise, the post of finance minister was filled by Janota and the post of trade and industry minister by Vladimir Tosovsky.

On Friday, Fischer had proposed his own candidates to the three posts, which caused a rift between him on the one hand and leaders of the Civic Democratic Party (ODS), the Social Democrats and the Greens on the other.

President Vaclav Klaus will appoint the new government on Friday afternoon.

The government will replace Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek's centre-right coalition government that lost a no-confidence vote in the Chamber of Deputies, initiated by the opposition Social Democrats (CSSD) in March.
