Czech Republic: President Milos Zeman hospitalized

AA / Belgrade, Serbia / Talha Ozturk

Czech President Milos Zeman was hospitalized on Sunday and admitted to an intensive care unit.

Zeman is being treated at the Central Military Hospital in the capital Prague, hospital director Dr Miroslav Zavoral said in a brief press release.

“The reason for the hospitalization is due to complications related to the health problems for which he was already followed,” said Dr Zavoral, without giving further details on the state of health of President Zeman.

The 77-year-old president’s office previously said he had been unwell and had been in hospital for eight days last month.

Zeman has suffered from a series of health problems over the past few years.

His hospitalization comes the day after parliamentary elections in the country which saw his close ally, Prime Minister Andrej Babis, lose to a center-right coalition.

President Zeman should have a key role to play in forming a new government.
