The Czech president, Miloš Zeman, says he will not appoint a new prime minister until he recovers from a knee problem. The head of state has been laid up since a fall two weeks ago and is expected to be back on his feet at the start of next month at the earliest. In a radio interview, he said making Bohuslav Sobotka prime minister was a matter of dignity that he could not conduct from a wheelchair. Mr. Sobotka’s Social Democrats came first in elections last month and he is holding talks with ANO and the Christian Democrats on forming a coalition. Mr. Zeman said he may charge him with forming a government next week, not on Wednesday when they are set to hold talks for the first time since the elections.
