The former president’s spokesman Jiří Ovčáček reported on the “friendly meeting” on Twitter. In the past, Zeman regularly met with Babiš at working dinners at the castle in Lány, where the president stayed and where Babiš went to see him as Prime Minister.
Zeman opened his office last week. It attracted attention mainly due to the fact that the ex-president, who is almost exclusively dependent on a wheelchair, does not have barrier-free access to the office, and the fact that it is an apartment, with one of his bedrooms created as Zeman’s study after the bed was removed.
After the end of his mandate, Zeman moved to a house he had built in Lány. Babiš had the ambition to replace him in the presidential office, but Petr Pavel defeated him in the presidential election.
