President Miloš Zeman is to accept the resignation by the week’s end, but the government will continue its work until a new one is appointed.
Andrej Babiš told journalists that he intends to hand over all the documents on resignation himself.
The negotiations between the parliamentary parties are to begin today. Zeman said he would appoint Babiš again only if he wins a majority in the House.
Babiš became Prime minister a little more than a month ago, on Dec. 13, 2017. Then he was supported by a minority: 78 MPs voted for him, 116 were against, and 6 abstained.
