Prague, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 25th Nov, 2021 ) :Czech President Milos Zeman left Prague's Military University Hospital (UVN) for home care on Thursday when he was due to appoint the new prime minister, the facility said.
Zeman was expected to appoint centre-right leader Petr Fiala as prime minister at Lany on Friday.
"The UVN still recommends care provided in a specialised medical facility under the supervision of a team of medical experts," the hospital said.
"However, considering the remarkable improvement in the president's condition, we fully respect his decision to prefer the fulfillment of his constitutional duties outside the medical facility," it added.
The Together alliance comprising Fiala's right-wing Civic Democratic Party, the centrist Christian Democrats and the centre-right TOP 09 party, defeated the populist ANO movement of outgoing billionaire Prime Minister Andrej Babis.
Together has teamed up with a centrist grouping of the Mayors and Independents and the Pirate Party to clinch a majority of 108 votes in the 200-seat parliament.
The five parties put together a government while Zeman, who would normally have mediated the post-election talks, was in hospital.
The statement set off warning signals as the outspoken veteran left-winger is known for having insisted on his choices on several occasions in the past.
