Cabinet to slow work tempo

FOLLOWING the cabinet's unanimous approval of the Act on Early Elections yesterday, Prime Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda said that the government would reduce the tempo of its work.

"Slovakia is now getting itself into the same regime that any country enters four months before general elections," Dzurinda said.

The prime minister said that the cabinet would likely meet every other week from now on, rather than every week as until now, the SME daily wrote.

Parliament is expected to pass the Act on Early Elections today. The country's political parties earlier agreed on an election date of June 17.
