Czech President Milos Zeman said on Friday he would appoint Social Democrat leader Bohuslav Sobotka as prime minister on January 17, paving the way for a center-left coalition to take power after months of political stalemate. Sobotka will then ask Zeman to appoint his cabinet. Zeman told Reuters on Thursday that he had reservations about some nominations for ministers, but it was "very realistic" to expect the full cabinet would be appointed by the end of the month.
