Czech PM to discuss government formation with president

31-05-2018

Czech prime minister Andrej Babiš will meet with head of state, president Miloš Zeman, on Thursday at his country retreat to discuss progress in forming a government. The search for a stable government has been ongoing since elections last October gave ANO a clear win but short of a majority in the 200-seat lower house.

ANO leader Babiš is expected to fil in details about the composition of a new government and when it might be named. President Zeman has already said that he will give Babiš a second chance at forming a government whatever the outcome of an internal party referendum within the Social Democrat party over whether they will enter a coalition with ANO.
