President to attend government session on Wednesday

President Miloš Zeman will attend Wednesday’s session of the government and visit the upper chamber, the Senate, on Thursday, his office said on Monday. The president announced earlier he would be more active in this respect than his predecessors, Vaclav Klaus and Vaclav Havel who only made exceptional appearances at the Office of the Government. President Zeman said he planned to use his prerogative to attend government sessions whenever the cabinet dealt with issues he felt strongly about.
