Ailing Czech President To Cast Ballot At Home
Czech President Milos Zeman will cast his ballot in the upcoming general election at his residence, his office said on Thursday, stoking speculations about his poor health
Prague, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 7th Oct, 2021 ) :Czech President Milos Zeman will cast his ballot in the upcoming general election at his residence, his office said on Thursday, stoking speculations about his poor health.
He added Zeman would also adjust his programme for the days to come based on the doctor's recommendations, without giving any details.
The 77-year-old pro-Russian, pro-Chinese Zeman spent eight days in hospital in September for what his office described as "a reconditioning stay" as Zeman was exhausted and dehydrated.
But Vaclav Klaus, Zeman's predecessor in the presidential seat, told the Impuls radio on Thursday Zeman had "a liver problem".
"I think every little child knows that he has serious health problems and that they are definitely due to his lifestyle, the glass on the one hand and the cigarette on the other," Klaus said.
He has already suggested he will appoint billionaire populist incumbent Andrej Babis, his close ally, whose ANO (YES) movement is tipped to win the vote.
