Czech President Milos Zeman has been discharged from the Czech capital’s military hospital after his condition improved

PRAGUE — Czech President Milos Zeman was discharged Thursday from the Czech capital’s military hospital after his condition improved.

The hospital said Thursday it would have preferred Zeman to remain hospitalized, but accepted his decision to leave due to a “significant improvement” in his condition.

The president will recuperate at the presidential chateaux in Lany, just west of Prague.

Zeman is a heavy smoker and drinker who has suffered from diabetes. He has trouble walking and has been using a wheelchair.

Together teamed up with a liberal coalition made up of the Pirate Party and STAN — a group of mayors and independent candidates — which came in third place with 15.6% of votes.

The new partnership will hold 108 seats in the 200-seat lower house of Parliament, relegating populist Prime Minister Andrej Babis and his centrist ANO (YES) movement to the opposition.

The five parties have signed a deal to rule together. It wasn’t immediately clear when Zeman might appoint the entire government.
