Government formation, program
After the extended plenary session of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia at the end of May 1963, at which the growing economic problems of the country were criticized, a change of government should guide the economy with new concepts. Jozef Lenárt was proposed as Prime Minister , who replaced Prime Minister Viliam Široký on September 20, 1963 after ten years .
Further demands for new methods were discussed by the party's Central Committee on November 3, 1965, and on November 10, the first party secretary and president Antonín Novotný ordered and enforced further reform. The central task of the new government was to rationalize and manage the economy more efficiently. The Central Committee used terms such as "new system of control" for the first time. Despite many changes, these efforts were unsuccessful (15 ministries were newly appointed or reorganized between 1964–1967), and the party and government were increasingly confronted with the progressive liberalization of society, which culminated in the so-called Prague Spring of 1968.
