Luxembourg spying scandal threatens Juncker government
Czech President Milos Zeman on Wednesday appointed a technocrat government led by his long-time leftist ally Jiri Rusnok in a controversial bid to end a political crisis sparked by a bribery and spy scandal.
Zeman, the Czech Republic’s first directly elected head of state, chose the 52-year-old economist last month to replace Petr Necas, a right-wing rival toppled amid the country’s longest ever recession.
“I would like to assure you we’ll do our best to … serve the citizens of our country as best we can,” Rusnok told Zeman after the ministers were appointed.
