PRAGUE (Reuters) - The new Czech minority government will seek a parliamentary confidence vote on July 11, Prime Minister Andrej Babis said on Wednesday.

President Milos Zeman appointed the two-party centre-left government comprising Babis’s ANO party and the Social Democrats on Wednesday. The coalition will need to seek parliamentary support from the Communist party.
