Miloš Zeman

Zeman in 2017 Miloš Zeman (; born 28 September 1944) is a Czech politician serving as the third and current president of the Czech Republic since 8 March 2013. He previously served as the prime minister of the Czech Republic from 1998 to 2002. As leader of the Czech Social Democratic Party during the 1990s, he transformed his party into one of the country's major political forces. Zeman was the president of the Chamber of Deputies, the lower house of the Czech Parliament, from 1996 until he became prime minister two years later in 1998.

In January 2013, Zeman was elected President of the Czech Republic. He is the first directly elected president in Czech history; both of his predecessors, Václav Havel and Václav Klaus, were elected by the Czech Parliament. In 2018, he was re-elected for a second term. During his tenure, United States government-sponsored Radio Free Europe has described him as "one of the European Union's most Kremlin-friendly leaders" due to his pro-Russian stance.
