President Miloš Zeman on Tuesday formally accepted the resignation of the government of Bohuslav Sobotka, which was tendered by the coalition of the Social Democrats, ANO and the Christian Democrats last week. On Wednesday afternoon the head of state is due to name ANO’s Andrej Babiš prime minister. Next week Mr. Zeman will appoint a minority ANO government.
Since October’s elections, in which ANO took almost 30 percent of the vote, the outgoing government has limited its activities to urgent matters and European affairs. The Sobotka cabinet was one of only three since the foundation of the Czech Republic to see out its four-year term.
