PRAGUE: Czech President Milos Zeman was rushed to the hospital on Sunday, a day after the country held parliamentary election in which populist PM Andrej Babis’ party surprisingly came in second and Zeman has a key role in establishing a new government. The Czech presidency is a largely ceremonial post but the president has the right to choose what political leader can try to form the next government. Earlier on Sunday, Zeman met with Babis, his close ally.
On Saturday, the centrist ANO (Yes) party led by Babis, a populist billionaire, narrowly lost the Czech Republic’s parliamentary election. A liberal-conservative three-party coalition named Together captured 27.8% of the vote. The winning coalition got a majority of 108 seats in the 200-seat House, and they pledged to work together. Zeman indicated he would first appoint the leader of the strongest party, not the strongest coalition, to try to form the government, which would be Babis.
