Czech President Milos Zeman formally dissolved the parliament’s lower chamber on August 28, as initially announced, making way to an early vote aimed to put an end to months of political turmoil, the president’s office said in a statement.
Under the Czech Constitution, Zeman has to formally dissolve the parliament after the lawmakers voted on move on August 20. The country will hold early elections on October 25-26, ahead of a regular vote next May.
