According to Milos Vestrel, the Czech president is unable to perform his job duties.
Czech President Milos Zeman is unable to perform any work duties. This was announced at a press conference on Monday by the President of the Senate, Milos Vistrel, on the basis of a report from the Central Military Hospital where Zeman is hospitalized.
According to Deník N, Vystrčil also announced that due to the nature of the disease, the long-term prognosis of the president’s health status is being evaluated as highly uncertain. He said the chances of Zeman returning to his job were slim.
In addition, the Senate president said that Zeman’s chief of staff, Vratislav Minai, was informed of the president’s condition last Wednesday.
ÚVN sent Vystrčil a response to his request regarding the president’s health on Monday morning. However, the hospital did not publish the content due to compliance with the law.
Milos Vistrel informed the public of the content of the letter after consulting with lawyers.
The leadership of the Senate claims that at present there is no possible action other than the activation of Article 66 of the Constitution of the Czech Republic, on the basis of which the powers of the President will pass to the Prime Minister and the Speaker of the Chamber of Deputies, writes Novinky.cz. It is scheduled to meet representatives of the leadership of the Senate, on Tuesday, with the heads of the parties in the Council for this purpose.
