PRAGUE (Reuters) - Czech Social Democrat leader Bohuslav Sobotka said the president's plan to name him as prime minister within days is a positive signal that will allow for the quick creation of a stable government.
President Milos Zeman told Reuters on Thursday that he would appoint Sobotka as prime minister within days, opening the way for a centre-left coalition after the collapse of a centre-right cabinet in June and early elections in October that the Social Democrats won.
A caretaker government, appointed by Zeman but without parliamentary backing, has run the country in the past six months year.
