Prague - Prague High State Attorney Lenka Bradacova is the woman with the strongest influence on the developments in the country, followed by Czech Energy Regulatory Office (ERU) head Alena Vitaskova and central bank board member Eva Zamrazilova, Czech issue of Forbes magazine announced today.
The magazine today released a list of the 50 most powerful Czech women, most of whom are from the field of business.
Compared with 2012, when this TOP 50 list was released for the first time in the Czech Republic, the number of female politicians in the list has decreased.
Czech Forbes editor-in-chief Petr Simunek said Bradacova is currently having all major political and business criminal cases under her control.
Simunek recalled that Vitaskova as ERU head promoted a reduction of state subsidies to renewable resources, in which billions of crowns are at stake, earlier this year.
In 2012, former U.S. secretary of state Madeleine Albright, who is of Czech origin, topped the list. This year, Albright was not put on the list and Forbes made her a member of the Hall of Fame.
Three politicians who were among the ten most powerful Czech women in 2012 are not in the TOP 10 this year - former deputy prime minister Karolina Peake, former chairwoman of the lower house of parliament Miroslava Nemcova and the former head of the prime minister's office, Jana Necasova-Nagyova, who is now being prosecuted over suspected corruption and abuse of the intelligence service.
Fourth position on the new list goes to Katerina Jiraskova, financial director of the PPF financial group. Ringier Axel Springer CZ media group director general Libuse Smuclerova is number five.
Last year, Albright was followed by Smuclerova, Peake and Nemcova.
Forbes has been issuing the list of the world´s most powerful women since 2004. The Czech list, now issued for the second time, was completed based on the same principles as the world one.
