ANO: Compulsory English, not religion

THE MAIN topics on the agenda at the national congress of the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) party in Banská Bystrica on January 29 were the current political situation in Slovakia and the party's election priorities.

"ANO rejects the Vatican's agreements, it prefers to enable prenuptial agreements and an act on registered partnerships. We're convinced that modern society means the Internet and compulsory English instead of compulsory religious educa-tion," ANO leader Pavol Rusko said at a news conference following the congress.
