Prague - Czech Social Democrat (CSSD) head Bohuslav Sobotka will meet President Milos Zeman on Friday and ask him to take constitutional steps towards quickly appointing a new government, Sobotka wrote to CTK today.
He said his cold over which he cancelled his programme today should not frustrate the meeting with Zeman.
"I will meet the President based on my yesterday´s (Monday) request on Friday. I will take present to him the original of the signed coalition agreement and ask him to take as soon as possible constitutional steps leading to the quick appointment of a new government," Sobotka wrote.
On Monday already he called on Zeman to appoint him prime minister without delay.
The government coalition comprises the CSSD, ANO movement and Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL).
Jiri Ovcacek, the Presidential Office´s spokesman, said today he would not talk about any particular date of appointment of the prime minister.
Sobotka said last week already he is convinced that he has fulfilled all conditions Zeman laid for his appointment prime minister.
On Monday, he and the chairmen of ANO and the KDU-CSL, Andrej Babis and Pavel Belobradek, respectively, signed the coalition agreement and presented their candidates for ministers.
The three parties have a majority of 111 votes in the 200-seat Chamber of Deputies, based on the early general election last October.
