Prague Castle wants to comment on the further progress of President Miloš Zeman in forming the government on Wednesday. According to castle spokesman Jiří Ovčáček, the president communicates, monitors the political situation and gets acquainted with the latest events. He was visited by his family and Chancellor Vratislav Mynář at the Central Military Hospital on Tuesday. Prague Castle has previously announced that Zeman appointed the new chairman of the Brno Regional Court, Milan Čečotka, on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Andrej Babis (YES) said on Tuesday that the president would grant a mandate to form a government after the current government resigned. “Comments on this matter can be expected during tomorrow (Wednesdays),” Ovčáček said on Tuesday.
He added that Zeman and Mynář’s family visited the hospital again on Tuesday. “I want to emphasize that the President is communicating, monitoring the political situation and getting acquainted with the latest developments,” he said. According to him, Zeman also agreed on Tuesday that Mynář would hand over the appointment decree to the new president of the Regional Court in Brno and greet him. According to Ovčáček, this happened today at 2 pm at Prague Castle.
“The president had apricot buns for lunch on Tuesday, he ordered a wine sausage with mashed potatoes for tomorrow (Wednesday),” the spokesman added.
On Sunday afternoon, Zeman was transferred to the ÚVN to the intensive care unit. According to the president’s attending physician and the director of the Central Hospital, Miroslav Zavoral, the reason for the sudden hospitalization was the complications accompanying Zeman’s chronic illness. He stated that the transfer was planned. Zavoral did not tell the media the exact diagnosis because he did not have the patient’s consent. ÚVN spokeswoman Jitka Zinke said on Monday that Zeman’s health was stable. Due to the hospitalization of the media, politicians are also speculating about the president’s ability to hold office. The Senate therefore wants to ask the Office of the President of the Republic for forecasts of the president’s health. According to an earlier statement by Ovčáček, hospitalization does not endanger post-election negotiations and the constitutional situation.
A spokesman for the president said on Friday that the president had been ill for two weeks. On the recommendation of Zavoral, Zeman therefore voted in the elections on Friday at the castle in Lány and canceled Sunday’s participation in the television debate. On Sunday, after Zeman was taken to the hospital, a castle spokesman said that the president’s hospitalization did not endanger post-election negotiations and the constitutional situation. He added that the president now needs peace for treatment, the course and duration of which will be decided by doctors. According to a spokesman for the ÚVN, the treatment plan is set by the medical council of a hospital composed of specialists in Zeman’s partial health problems.
