Czech government to face vote of confidence on Wednesday

The minority government of Prime Minister and ANO Party leader Andrej Babiš is set to face a vote of confidence in the Chamber of Deputies on Wednesday.

The ANO government is expected to lose its first attempt to find backing in the lower house since all the other parliamentary parties, including the Communists, have said they were not willing to support it. A second attempt at winning a confidence vote has been promised by head of state, Miloš Zeman, who is scheduled to appear and speak in the Chamber of Deputies ahead of the vote on Wednesday.
