PRAGUE, Dec 18 (Reuters) - Czech President Milos Zeman plans to appoint outgoing Prime Minister Jiri Rusnok to the central bank board from March 2014, the president's spokesman said on Wednesday.
Rusnok, who has headed a caretaker cabinet since the collapse of a centre-right government in June, would replace board member Eva Zamrazilova, whose six-year term is ending.
'The president counts on the fact that Jiri Rusnok will become a member of the central bank governing board in March,' the president's spokesman Jiri Ovcacek said, confirming a report in newspaper Hospodarske Noviny.
