Senate committee declares President Zeman fit for office

The Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs of the Czech Senate has not recommended that the chamber discuss whether President Miloš Zeman is unfit to continue in his office, news site iDnes.cz reported on Tuesday.

The proposal to declare Miloš Zeman unfit to continue as president of the Czech Republic was originally put forward in June by the Senate’s Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Security, according to article 66 of the constitution.

A total of 15 constitutional experts were consulted in the decision. However, the Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs found insufficient reasons to support the proposal.
