Former coalition parties and the opposition have expressed their strong disapproval of the naming of a caretaker prime minister by the president. No parliamentary party has expressed support for the new Prime Minister Jiří Rusnok, whose future cabinet is already running the risk of not getting enough votes in parliament to confirm their position. President Miloš Zeman placed his trust in Jiří Rusnok to put together a new caretaker government, which would resolve the current political crisis in the country.
