Head of State Milos Zeman has been in the intensive care unit at a hospital in Prague since Sunday. Little is known about his health; According to Czech media reports, the President is being told a serious liver disease.

On Thursday, Zaman from the hospital had set November 8 as the date for the first session of the new parliament.

Only then can the President officially issue a mandate to form the government.

Presidential spokesman Jiri Owecek announced a meeting between Zaman and Fiala “at a later date” this week.
