The Social Democrats set a final condition for staying in the government, prolonging a political crisis that has brought the ruling coalition to the brink of collapse. The party said Monday it will leave the minority cabinet unless President Milos Zeman appoints their nominee for culture minister. A potential coalition breakup would be a blow for PM Andrej Babis. But the departure of his junior partner wouldn't automatically trigger early elections.
