============================NEWS/EVENTS=========================
    GOVERNMENT: Czech President Milos Zeman will appoint members

political instability after last October's election, a spokesman
for the president said on Monday.

had expected, a Reuters poll showed on Monday.
                
    
    EU ENLARGEMENT: The European Union is divided over whether
to allow membership talks with Albania and Macedonia as
anti-immigration sentiment rises in the bloc, but NATO is ready
to welcome Skopje into the Western military alliance.
                
    
    CEE MARKETS: The Czech crown fell in tandem with Central

    GOVERNMENT AND COMMUNISTS: The Communist party may not
support the new government if its conditions are not met,
chairman Vojtech Filip told the paper, adding that although he
is trying to smooth up the objections of his colleagues at the
party leadership, he is not that successful. 
    The wider leadership of KSCM will meet on Saturday to decide
on the party support for the minority government of Prime
Minister Andrej Babis's ANO party and the Social Democratic
party (CSSD).
