Czech Republic’s president admitted to ICU after meeting PM

Prague, Oct 10 (EFE).- The Czech Republic’s president Milos Zeman on Sunday was admitted to the intensive care unit at a Prague military hospital.

The 77-year-old Zeman was hospitalized after meeting prime minister Andrej Babis to discuss the results of the general elections held over the weekend in which a center-right opposition coalition won.

 “It is a complication that accompanies his chronic illness, of which (the president) is treated here,” Miroslav Zavoral, director of Prague Central Military Hospital told local media.

“I do not have authorization from the President to communicate the diagnosis,” he added.

Zeman has suffered for several weeks from his delicate state of health, which prompted the authorities to move an electoral ballot box to his residence so that he votes.

The center-right Spolu coalition, comprised of three parties, obtained 27.7 percent compared to 27.1 percent won by Babis’ ANO.

Together with another more liberal-oriented coalition, formed by the Mayors and Pirates parties, Spolu would have a comfortable majority of 108 of the Parliament’s 200 seats. EFE
