Prague, March 6 (CTK) – Czech President Milos Zeman will not definitely be more reserved in his statement as the Senate, the upper house of parliament, asked him on Thursday, he said in the Duel discussion programme on Prima television yesterday.
He said it might considered impudent if the Senate advises a president with twice as high support of the public opinion on how to raise his trustworthiness.
The Senate agreed on Thursday that Zeman should be more restrained in his statements. He should not harm the respect due to other constitutional officials and threaten the allied commitments and value orientation of the Czech Republic.
The Senate reacted among others to Zeman’s controversial words about Prime Minister Bohuslav Soobtka (Social Democrats, CSSD).
The Senate approved the resolution by the tightest possible majority of votes. It was supported by 18 out of 35 senators present. The Senate has 81 members.
