Little-known economist Jan Fischer was named Czech interim prime minister Thursday to shepherd the country through the rest of its troubled European Union presidency and to early elections in October. Fischer, the non-partisan head of the Czech Statistical Office, will replace outgoing PM Mirek Topolánek, whose centre-right coalition cabinet was toppled last month, midway through the Czech EU presidency that ends 30 June.
