Prime Minister Andrej Babiš of ANO says he hopes Jan Hamáček of coalition partners the Social Democrats resolves the situation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs within two months at the latest. He made the comment in an interview for Právo. At present Mr. Hamáček, who is minister of the interior, is also serving as foreign minister in a temporary capacity. The situation came about after President Miloš Zeman refused the Social Democrats’ candidate for foreign policy chief, Miroslav Poche.
Mr. Babiš said he expected the Social Democrats to put forward a different nominee. The prime minister said the current situation had to end as the Czech Republic would be celebrating the centenary of Czechoslovakia at the UN General Assembly, which begins in the last week of September.
