Czech Senate chief says ailing president unable to fulfil duties

PRAGUE (Reuters) – Czech President Milos Zeman is currently unable to carry out his duties, the head of parliament’s upper house said on Monday, citing a report he had requested from the hospital where Zeman has been in intensive care for more than a week.

Milos Vystrcil, the Senate speaker, told reporters that the report said there was only a small likelihood Zeman could return to work in the coming weeks. He said parliament needed to discuss enacting a constitutional clause that shifts the president’s duties to other officials.
