The current government of the Social Democrats, ANO and the Christian Democrats, led by Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka, held its last meeting on Wednesday. President Miloš Zeman on Tuesday formally accepted the government’s resignation and is due to name ANO leader Andrej Babiš prime minister later on Wednesday afternoon.
The outgoing Sobotka government will continue its work until next week, when president Zeman is expected to formally appoint a minority ANO government.
Since October elections, in which ANO took almost 30 percent of the vote and 78 seats in the 200-seat lower house, the government has limited its activities to urgent matters and European affairs.
