Description This article explores the understudied question of who is likely to become a minister in the Czech Republic. It analyses some of the key characteristics of Czech ministers in the period from 1993 till 2018: we focus mainly on education and carriers before and after the office. The first goal is to identify reservoir pools from which Czech ministers tend to be recruited. The second is to apply a new typology based on Blondel’s distinction between specialists and generalists, combined with the distinction between politicians and technocrats. Individual governments are then compared based on the relative representation of each of these types of ministers.
