PRAGUE, June 27 (Reuters) - Czech President Milos Zeman appointed a new two-party cabinet led by Prime Minister Andrej Babis on Wednesday, installing a minority government that may need the support of the once-outcast Communist party to exercise its mandate.
Babis’s anti-establishment ANO party won an election last October but has yet to win parliamentary approval for a government. To break the stalemate, it has agreed a coalition with the Social Democrats.
But with just 93 seats in the 200-strong lower house, the coalition is seeking outside support from the Communists - giving the fringe party its first say in national politics in the almost three decades since its authoritarian rule ended.
