The Czech government agreed to resign on Thursday following an election, Prime Minister Andrej Babis said, pledging his outgoing government will continue efforts to tame the resurgent COVID-19 pandemic, Reuters reports.
Czech government agrees to resign following election
STEPANAKERT, NOVEMBER 11, ARTSAKHPRESS: Babis said he sent the offer of resignation in a letter to President Milos Zeman, who has been hospitalised since Oct. 10, instead of delivering it in person as is the usual practice.
When Zeman accepts the resignation, he is due to task the outgoing government to perform its duties until the new government is appointed, which is expected to take place in the coming weeks.
Babis and his allies lost the Oct. 8-9 election to two blocs of opposition parties which have already agreed to form the next government, with Petr Fiala, leader of the strongest party in the five-member coalition, as the prospective prime minister.
