Czech Rep. President Zeman leaves intensive care

(ANSA) – ROME, NOVEMBER 04 – After more than three weeks in intensive care, the Czech president Milos Zeman has been transferred to a rehabilitation unit, where he will continue his treatment. This was announced by the military hospital in Prague, where 77-year-old Zeman had been hospitalized on 10 October, in the aftermath of the legislative elections in the Czech Republic and shortly after meeting the outgoing premier Andrej Babis, whose Ano party had been defeated by measure in the polls by the three-party coalition Together. The images of local TV had shown him unconscious on that occasion.

Zeman officially suffers from diabetic neuropathy, but according to local media he also has severe liver problems.

“The clinical status of the president has improved,” a spokeswoman for the hospital said today.

The president’s exit from intensive care has come while the Czech senators are studying the possible constitutional ways to declare him incapable and thus make him forfeit his office. In this case, presidential powers would be assumed on an interim basis by the President of Parliament and the Prime Minister. However, Zeman would have expressed his intention to meet the leader of the possible new government coalition, Petr Fiala. (HANDLE).
