Czech president released from hospital after eight days…

Czech President Milos Zeman was released from a Prague hospital on Wednesday following an eight-day health check for the 76-year-old who suffers from diabetic neuropathy.

Zeman was hospitalised on September 14 for what his spokesman Jiri Ovcacek called “slight exhaustion and dehydration”.

A spokeswoman for the Military University Hospital, Jitka Zinke, told AFP the president left the facility Wednesday morning.

Ovcacek told AFP that Zeman “is now on his way to Lany,” a presidential residence just west of Prague.

The president would resume taking meetings in the afteroon, he said.

It will be up to Zeman as president to appoint a new prime minister after the Czech general election slated for October 8-9.

The populist ANO movement led by billionaire Prime Minister Andrej Babis, Zeman’s ally, led the latest opinion polls, but is likely to lack coalition partners to form a majority government should it win the election.

Zeman, a veteran leftwinger with close ties with the leaders of Russia and China, underwent a four-day “reconditioning” hospital stay in autumn 2019.

Widely known as a chain smoker and a keen drinker, Zeman, who will turn 77 next week, suffers from hearing loss and diabetic neuropathy which has left him bound to a wheelchair since this year.
