AFP - Czech President Vaclav Klaus, whose country holds the European Union presidency, will appoint Jan Fischer as prime minister on Thursday, Klaus's spokesman said in a statement Wednesday.
Fischer, the non-partisan head of the Czech Statistical Office, will replace outgoing Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, whose cabinet was toppled last month midway through the Czech EU presidency running to June 30.
Klaus's spokesman Radim Ochvat said "President Vaclav Klaus expressed his satisfaction with the solution" proposed by Czech party leaders in a bid to end the political crisis.
