In her public statement in Hraden, Prague, Zimanova clearly described the matter that the press is concerned about the president’s health.
I can confirm that my husband underwent treatment, which is quite time consuming. I find guessing about his diagnosis unethical
Said the wife of the head of state who stood in front of reporters accompanied by her daughter. In her short statement, Zimanova asked the press to be patient and understanding. It was impossible to ask.
The state of health of the head of state is also of particular importance because after the Czech elections at the weekend, he must give someone the mandate to form a government. Although Prime Minister Andrej Babis’ party won the most seats, coalitions of opposition parties could almost certainly form a majority in Parliament. Therefore, you may need to grant more government formation mandates in the short term.
Head of state Milos Zeman, who played a key role in the government formation talks, has been in Prague’s Central Military Hospital since Sunday, where he is being cared for in the intensive care unit. The exact diagnosis of his illness has not been announced, but a hospital spokesperson said the head of state is stable. The 77-year-old president must give someone the mandate to form a government no later than 30 days after the election, unless someone maintains the result by then.
Presidential spokesman Jerry Oveček said on Wednesday that the president’s situation is stable, communicating with his environment and monitoring developments in the post-election Czech period. It is not yet clear how long the head of state will remain in hospital. According to Ovcác, this is decided in due time by doctors.
On Thursday, a spokesman said Milos Zeman would convene the new House of Representatives based on the October elections by November 8. According to the established rules, the first session of the new House of Representatives must be held no later than 30 days after the elections. This will also end the period during which election results can be kept.
Radek Wondraczyk, Speaker of the House of Representatives, announced that he would then hold the inaugural meeting of the House of Representatives on the day the current leaders of the House resign and elect new governing bodies and committee members.Cover photo: Milos Zeman’s Facebook page
