Czech president swears in government led by populist billionaire
Czech president Milos Zeman has sworn in a new minority government led by a populist billionaire after his centrist movement won a landslide in parliamentary elections.
Andrej Babis' Ano movement won 78 seats in the 200-seat lower house of parliament in October.
Mr Babis was sworn in as prime minister last week.
Known for his resolve to run the state like a company, Mr Babis opposes setting a date for the adoption the euro common currency and rejects the EU's relocation system for migrants.
Mr Babis faces fraud charges, a reason why none of the other parties agreed to create a coalition government with Ano.
Mr Babis has created an Ano minority government with independent experts.
In order to rule, the new government must first win a parliamentary confidence vote scheduled for January 10.
