Zeman assured Sobotka, that he will be charged with forming the government

Chairman of the Social Democrats Bohuslav Sobotka has been invited to Lány next Thursday. It is practically certain that President Miloš Zeman will charge him to negotiate the formation of a Cabinet. Moreover, the President met with the leader of the Communist Party Vojtech Filip who debated the attitude of his Party to the legal measures adopted in the Senate. Social Democrats want to form a coalition with ANO and KDU-ČSL. If the discussion goes well, the government can be formed by the end of this year, Sobotka mentioned. Charging with negotiation is not in virtue of the Constitution, it is rather a convention – which implies that Sobotka cannot quite yet be certain to be appointed as a Prime Minister.
